Contact with the developer of Pythonista?
Has anyone tried, or been able to make contact with Mr. Zorn (I think his name is Ole Zorn), the developer of Pythonista?
I wish to respect his right to privacy, and his right not to be bothered by pestering. But I truly wish we had some way of starting a conversation about what the future of Pythonista might be, if any.
It would be such a shame if the app and its community simply died out when either it disappears from the app store, or it ceases to be compatible with a future iOS version (we have continued to be lucky on both fronts so far).
I'm not at all sure how to approach this in a way that is respectful of the developer's situation and needs. Any suggestions welcome, of course.
He was active on Twitter a month or so ago. There used to be an email associated with the TestFlight version, I might have an old copy somewhere.
I assume he does still visit the forums -- spam gets deleted, etc, unless someone else has admin privileges -- but prefers not to engage.

I'm sure I wouldn't be alone in willing to pay for a subscription (like Working Copy) or regular one-off payments for standard library upgrades...
@cvp there was one tweet in August (a reply to a tweet). Before that, the last one was 2020.
Contact info is listed here:
Looking back at the old testflight contact, the interaction was with
@JonB @cvp, I have tried a few attempts to contact the couple of support email addresses we have for Pythonista, but there's no response. My guess is it is @omz alone handling anything that comes in there.
Anyway, I think we should continue to work on finding a way to get in contact, though in no way do I wish to put undue pressure on Ole, or come across as pushy or rude. I just want to get a conversation started.
