Here is the situation at hand. There has been lots of drama in the bukkit community, so much so that bukkit as we all knew it and it's forks, spigot, etc. They are essentially dead. This leaves server owners like myself in a tough spot. We can wait to see how things turn out with mojang and bukkit or wait for sponge. Sponge is a new server api coming at the heals of all this drama, started by sk89q, it will be a whole new api and plugin solution for servers. However this means all plugins, etc would need to be ported over, if or when sponge if done.
Right now it's a waiting game for everyone, myself and you the players.
