Is Backtrader dead?
Hi, I'm wondering what's the state of the current project.
I see that there has been only one commit in the last 7 months.
Moreover, the community forum seems to have issues: the date is not shown on many posts so I can't really tell whether anything substantial has happened in the last 2 years. I know that there was one active moderator, but I wonder about the project itself.
Is it possible to have information about the current status?

@tospip The current status is that the creator of
Backtrader, Daniel Rodriguez considers the project complete. The original repo is not open for any modifications unless Daniel decides to come online and pull them in, which he has done once in while.
There is another repo Backtrader2 which was created just for the purpose of incorporating bug fixes. It is open and anyone can participate. Feel free to add any pull request there, but you will need to install the Backtrader2 forked version.
So the original backtrader is officially not maintained anymore.
