Dear Carmine and Roger,

thanks for the links we will take a look at the various collected CI metrics.
As Roger pointed out, the master branch is currently out-of-date. For both this repository as well as
openmicroscopy/openmicroscopy, stable code development and releases have been happening on the
develop branch for the last decade.
These two Git repositories constitute an historical exception as all recent organizational OME repositories
follow the accepted convention using master as the default branch.

Updating master on both repos to the latest release tag would be fairly costless and we can look into pushing
this  if there is value for the community. That being said, we would still encourage people to consume the default

Or do you know that the branch "east" has last synced with the master branch last February, and the master branch has commits that are 11.99 weeks newer than that?

I looked into some of the statistics, and when investigating noticed that the master branch of bioformats:

% git show origin/master
commit 4d0f6757bed4e9b219ee9bfac575f1e924d9a2b9 (origin/master)
Merge: 5d5c127e3d 05840624ab

hasn't been updated since the 5.1.4 release in 2015.  Is this intentional, or an oversight in the release process?  Should it be updated for 5.9.1?
