Part of that I think is because once Mon is deployed somewhere, it
doesn't really need to be modified, it just works, so it's probably
installed in a lot of places and just humming along just fine, so you
don't really hear about it.

Mon is under active development, heck I just checked in a bunch of
patches we had been running not too long ago:


As you can see there is a lot of development in CVS, but there hasn't
been an official release for a while; I'm sure when Jim wants to make
an official release, then you'll see a lot more discussion about Mon,
and maybe even some more developers. :)

I thought the same way you did a few months ago, that the Mon project
was dead, but it's not, it's just not very visibly alive. ;)
