It seems to me there isn't an actual developer working on the official code. Maybe the original developers of the addon have abandoned it. Such is open source.

This addon is attributed to "The Collective" or somesuch? Who are they? Are any of them still on this thread? If they are no longer connected to development of this addon, is there someone with dedication to take over management and development of this quite important addon?

Will the YouTube plugin ever be fixed for Gotham, so that I can log in and watch all my subscriptions.

Sorry if this has been asked before.
I have Gotham under Raspberry PI. The plugin gives me a login error although I have used the fix method. Can you please upload the fixed plugin to any of the free download sharing sites?
I have Gotham 13.1 and no problem with the youtube plugin I have a few script erros with plugins I almost beginning to think that these are python issues with gotham

Everyone should really just follow this video to de-facto log in to xbmc. Biggest step is the last one which is replace your password in settings.xml with an app specific password which google is awesome for doing.
Is the "Play on XBMC" feature broken for 13.1 with version 1.0.9 of the remote? Any documentation that may help with this? I don't care about logging on to my youtube account in xbmc, I just want to play videos I search on my phone on xbmc.
