Is GKE orb still maintained?

Hey, just wanted to ask if this orb is still maintained: GitHub - CircleCI-Public/gcp-gke-orb: Interact with Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) from CircleCI ? There’s no commits and no answers to issues since January. It gives a bit alarming message ab out the gclod-circleci ecosystem.

Hey @villesau
All certified orbs are actively maintained by our team. However, there are a lot of them, and not all orbs receive the same level of usage as others.

We update orbs as-needed, as well as when we receive reports such as this, and through community contributions.

Many orbs can remain stable for a long period of time without any updates because the orb itself contains no “code”, they typically pull Docker images and CLI’s and the versions can often be set with parameters.

So for instance, just because GKE itself has been updated, does not necessarily mean there are any changes required to the orb.

That said, if you are experiencing any specific issues, please let us know.

What I’m concerned is that there’s no any answers from the team in Github issues since February. It gives a feeling that the orb might be abandoned. Theres’s currently four open issues without any acknowledgement: Issues · CircleCI-Public/gcp-gke-orb · GitHub
