Yes, Gnatsweb development has been on ice for quite some time. I spent
an extraordinary amount of time on GNATS amd Gnatsweb stuff for a couple
of years and simply burnt out at one point.
Anyway, I have started looking at stuff again, while discovering how
completely one can forget the syntax after 3 Perl-free years. I have
started going through and committing some queued-up patches from
Savannah and from the mailing lists. Please send patches, preferably
through the Savannah interface; I may not have the kind of free time
required right now to start taking Gnatsweb in major new directions, but
I should be able to do the core maintainer stuff again.
One thing in particular which I did start thinking about before the long
pause is a redesign of the feedback mechanism upon PR creation or edit.
Could we get rid of the "display PR submitted page, then
refresh/redirect to the page the user was at before" cycle and replace
it with a little feedback field as part of the page banner? Basically
you would click "Submit", then instead of getting the intermediate page
saying "Problem report sent" or "Edit successful" be taken directly to
the page you were at when you clicked Create or Edit, with a little
field in the banner saying "Problem report number nn successfully
submitted" or "Problem report nn successfully edited".
Would anyone be willing to take a look at that?

Does anyone know the status of gnatsweb development? I've tried
contacting the Project Admins on the Savannah site - got a reply from
one who said he's not on that project anymore. I have a number of
changes to submit, mostly improved configurability plus a few
bugfixes; I see a few others have submitted some other changes.
