Today Christian Bertschy, the CEO and founder of Divio, added me to the list of core developers for django SHOP. Thanks to him, Chris Glass and all the other contributors of django SHOP!
Unfortunately, django SHOP in the past year did not gain much attention from the core developers and some of them might probably have shifted to another e-commerce framework. Myself, I was quite sad that open issues and pull requests were not answered. I now hope, to find enough time to revive this great project.
