There are several pull requests on the official BLE plugin but things seems to advance quite slow. Some users are wondering if it is still maintained and forks have been created. The question is… if it is not maintained as much how can we officialise a new fork maintained by developers willing to follow up its evolution ?
Pay someone to maintain a fork.
Paying might not be necessary since some users are willing to fork and maintain. : https://github.com/don/cordova-plugin-ble-central/pull/499
The question is what makes the ionic official plugin link to decide to point to another fork.
