The project got shut down by the author, the official GitHub repo was deleted, a bunch of signatures got collected to show support - and that's it?
Last year's opening keynote was started by showing the TechEmpower benchmarks - https://www.techempower.com/benchmarks/#section=data-r18 - which Actix dominates, and yet no one even comes forth to recruit new people in order to continue its development?
I personally got interested in Rust after seeing benchmark's results. A ton of people research actix benchmarks, it's a major selling point for language's adoption. Regardless of the author's intentions for the future, isn't Actix Web a bit too important to discard it without a second thought?
And if it's not discarded, what are the plans regarding its future?
