IMHO - as Kern (Bacula lead developer) is pushing Bacula forward I dont understand this too. It must be 
a misinformation about the current status of the project itself and competitors interests (Bareos).

Inactive? Every 2 months a release (average):

IIRC Bacula is also open source software. Remember RHEL binaries are not free 
available ... if you are referring to precompiled MS Windows binaries of Bacula).

BTW Bacula is included in CentOS/RHEL albeit in an older version. This applies also  
for example to PHP and has the cause in the enterprise strategy of the distribution.
So don't blame the wrong one.

Maybe a good reason to start a Backup SIG which provides a repository with current bacula packages?
