Is this project being maintaned?

On first glance, I thought this project would be great... I can use the already-productive VS 2008 environment to do my Python stuff on the spiffy new IronPython 2.0.

Bzzzt!  Wrong answer!  I have been spending more time chasing stupid errors because the environment consistently confuses spaces and tabs.  As a result it causes problems when one method in a class is (1 tab char) and the next method is (4 spaces), and it takes a lot of time to make sure the indents are of the proper character.

As a result, I have a hybrid development environment.  I set up Eclipse with PyDev, and my Visual Studio Projects folder is the Eclipse workspace.  I do all of the code writing in Eclipse and then switch to Visual Studio to debug.  It's a great combo, especially if you've done a lot of Python development under Linux (as I have).

Cheers,
