Indeed, there's been a tremendous amount of work on LevelDB ... so much
so that Basho's fork of LevelDB[1] (which is separate from the Erlang
binding[2]) is really a separate & independent fork of Google's original
version.  Matthew has made a lot of changes to make LevelDB useful in
Riak's concurrent environment, which uses *many* LevelDB instances
simultaneously.  The Google folks aren't interested in that kind of use
case.

Matthew still has a good working relationship with the parent project,
AFAIK, so they're still accepting patches as we find and fix bugs.
Basho has a strong interest in continuing development & performance
enhancements.  That Basho fork will remain active for the indefinite
future.
