Thanks for you interest in Sikuli. I was very enthusiastic when I
discovered it back in 2011.

But now I have some concerns about the way Sikuli (now SikuliX) is
maintained upstream, since the MIT orphaned their project. I can't see a
clear roadmap; some bugs just stage for months with no activity. I'm
afraid that SikuliX 1.1.0 might be of poor quality for now. That's why
I've been keeping it into experimental for so long.

BTW I'm not using it as much as I used to. If you think that release
1.1.0 is good enough for unstable, please tell me, I'll do the transition.

SikuliX 1.1.0 was first expected some 2 years before its effective
release, then continuously drifted one month at a time with an announce
like "release by the end of this month".

And I fail to see any significant activity on SikuliX2 github
repository. That's understandable : there is a lot of work to do on
release 1.1.x yet.

Thank you!
