it would be awesome if this code doesn't rot, but actually gets in to master.

That is a great shame, is there a posting indicating why development
stopped. I notice HarryvL is still active in the forum

Progress looked very impressive and being in Python
might lead to help from the community, if only in i/o UI.

If it is 'dead', I wonder if https://wiki.freecadweb.org/FEM_Solver
should be updated

Best Wishes

More important would be to turn some of the examples of Harry into unit tests, to make the code more robust in the regard of changes in master. I would go for this, once the code runs again.

Even if Harry would not continue to develop, this is a great base for others.

It's better to separate the solver part and the interaction part with FC. It should also run purely on Python. In this way, there may have wider interests to expand it.
