A former Unladen Swallow developer's comments[edit]

There is a retrospective of why Unladen swallow isn't really active any more on the blog of http://qinsb.blogspot.com/2011/03/unladen-swallow-retrospective.html .

Why only list the negative stuff??[edit]

Did the project achieve nothing??

It seems bizarre that this article talks exclusively about how dead the project might be and how it didn't meet its ambitious goals.

I mean, even if it didn't achieve a 500% speed increase, did it achieve a 20% increase? Did any improvements make it into CPython? Gronky (talk) 07:53, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

The project indeed achieved nothing or almost nothing. It definitely did not live up to the hype it generated. Relevant changes that actually did something (like cPickle improvements) made it upstream, the rest was not that interesting countryhacker (talk) 11:31, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
But that's more than nothing. Anything that got merged upstream is an achievement. I'll add a mention of cPickle to the article. If you could add anything else, that would be great. Gronky (talk) 00:00, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
