    I am trying to get a list of abandoned ROM projects.
    Some criteria I am looking at:
    What constitutes a non-supported or abandoned ROM project?
    e.g. No active development in x months?
    Too many reported but unfixed bugs?
    Too few users?
    Key developers who moved on to working on other projects?
    Inexperienced developers checking-in code and causing other problems not seen in earlier builds?
    etc.
    Trying to gauge the number of these ongoing ROM projects, and the turnover rate...

    I'm interested to hear opinions on this.

    I just had to go back to Fission 2.5.7 because the 2.6.1 update was a mess. So far, no more issues on the previous version.

    Sourcery rom for d1 (sorta)

    Development has ceased since like february but we still have a lot of users and our forum section still has new posts all the time we also have new users a lot.

    It has ceased on the d1 but eagle1967 may continue it on another device once he's settled i will also probably help out if he decides to start again but i have since moved to deving apps next app is under way and will definately blow some people away still has a lot of work but that's besides the point :)

    Thanks for the info, and hope others can provide a quick status too.

    With SourceForge apps (there are over 290,000 of them out there), we have something like
    http://sourceforge.net/top
    to show the popular ones in the different categories. I regret to say that less than 10% of the 290K apps are even worth looking at.
    But the best ones are better than their commercial counterparts.

    Anything similar for Android ROMs?
    Or do we learn about them from various disjoint sources?
