Hi Rudolf -
Thanks for the ping - I think it just fell off the radar so you’ll see I just commented.
And thanks again for the contribution and 'm glad to hear you are able to continue making progress. Obviously (alas) the world is in ever increasing need of tools to better understand COVID-19.
And yes, indeed I do know the ins and outs of the Slicer process well and I hope is welcoming and at least somewhat transparent to newcomers, but I understand it has unique quirks. Basically we used to have specific funding to support engineers working on Slicer, but those have ended and we haven’t found a general replacement yet. Several of us have grants and other projects that use Slicer, we try to keep the processes moving smoothly but it’s not always top on our minds.
Having COVID-19 related extensions will certainly help us make the case for the importance of making Slicer available, so keep them coming!
