[erlang-questions] Why do "interface to language X" projects all seem to die out?

We use erlport in production quite successfully, although we'd also like the map feature we haven't had any major issues with it.

So although there may be little activity it does what it says it does.

There aren't many Erlang projects that don't have a bus count of ~ 1 :)

Nonetheless this is a very impressive project and its patterns can be
applied to any language.

In terms of providing access to external libraries, I'd take this
