Note the tag that says the "Development Status" is "Beta".

I assume you're referring to the short description, "Robust enumerated
type support in Python".

That refers to the implemented type as robust, not the state of the
code. That is, the short description should be read as "Support, in
Python, for robust enumerated types". It's a description of the
package functionality.

If, of course, the state of the code is not robust, that's a bug that
needs to be fixed; but that's true for any package.
