Some people are occasionally contributing patches (Aaron, Szilvester,
me), but there's not really somebody doing really active development.

gannotate isn't really maintained at the moment, I'm not sure about

It'd help to trim down the number of GTK frontends. The fact that bzrk
is maintained in bzrk, bzr-gtk and olive is not really helping
development. I don't really mind whether bzrk and gannotate are
maintained as separate plugins, but it'd help if development was done in
one project only. 

Is gbzr still alive ? If not, can it be hidden or marked as abandoned?

Sounds great. I'd like to help out.
