The openhab-google-assistant seems abandoned compared to openhab-alexa repo. Code is a mess, issues not fixed and even simple PR are not checked and merged.
Alexa is miles ahead with capabilities and supported services vs Google Assitant.
I’ve forked the code, added some extra features that I needed (Player, Volume, Gate support) and created an issue to ask if a code cleanup to make it more DRY would be appreciated and if new features can be merged. But since the repo looks dead, no answer.
Also the Tag approach seems to be not scalable, and at least to me the way to go is through item metada like Alexa skill has been implemented. Can anyone comment why the Tag approach was chosen? Is there some kind of a roadmap? Or was this just one mans contribution which simply does not have time for this anymore?
The long term fix (at least to me) is complete rewrite by using item metadata, cause current Tag approach is not scalable, you cannot combine items, and you cannot implement complex items like Fan with various speed settings, aliases, etc.
I don’t want to complain, or insult anybody, I understand that this is Open source, I’m just looking if someone from the admins or plugin maintainer can shed a light on what is the status.
