Yes. For about half a year now.

With this level of commitment to support this from the PyPy team I
think people will be seriously discouraged from putting any of their
time in it.

When I put time in something, I want to know I can get something back
from it within a reasonable time frame. I want to have the impression
that the team behind the project cares about this kind of use. I'm
trying to find out. I've been trying to find out for half a year. So
far I'm pretty discouraged by the answers, or non-answers.
