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.
