  1. Maybe it is just me, but I don't see much if any activity for Transact. The last commit on Transact repo was May 4, the last Jira update was October 19, 2019. The mailing list is unused except for spam, and the RC chat is sparse at best.

    1. Most of the activity has been in consuming/using it. Transact is a mature enough library that a lot of the use cases in the last few months have been satisfied and didn't cause a need for additional feature development. As those ledgers evolve, we expect Transact to evolve to meet their needs.
