Pretty much the same as you, I don't need to access databases so it is 
still nothing more than a prototype at this point, with work on a future 
better interface that has documentation but no code.

It's in limbo until further notice. I would welcome patches working 
toward the better interface and possibly added drivers if someone is 
interested, and would discuss and review things.

Most of my time today is spent on Cowboy 2 and erlang.mk, and when I'm 
done with these, the Websocket work on Gun will take priority (but that 
should not take too long). I will probably not get back to Bank until 
OTP 18.0 (and to be honest, maps changed everything so there was no real 
interest from me to work on Bank until we got those in Erlang properly).

In short: it's still on my radar, just not at the top of the list.
