Catalyst 5.5 was a big milestone and added all the api extensions we  
need to develop new features as plugins.
That means the core will stay quite stable (no more big changes) and  
we will (only) add the most common used plugins to it. ;)

Right, we rely completely on volunteers.
It's very easy to get involved in the development process by joining  
#catalyst. (very similar to the Pugs project)

We especially need more *active* web admins. *hint hint*

I prefer to use the best tools for the task, which Trac happens to be  
at the moment, switching to a half-hearted wiki, just because it's  
Catalyst powered is not a good idea imo.
