e.g., ...for a stable, constantly refined, continuously updated, modeling platform which also solicits feedback from its user base?

Me, too. A lot. Often.

Thanks to the EnergyPlus development team and all the users who help keep it that way.

And if you are a U.S. citizen, call your congressional representatives and let them know this. The DOE's office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, which houses the building technologies office that funds EnergyPlus and OpenStudio development, is targeted to be cut in the next federal budget cycle.

How can we find out more details? e.g., Does "cut" mean gone completely or reduced by some amount?

The administration plans to eliminate the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, but this will likely be stopped by congress, who will allow just a big cut.
