Looks at least like this repository is alive and well:

Hello,

I have just installed the last version of 737-800 (master branch), I use flightgear 2020.1.3, archlinux,

I notice bad font alignement for the altitude indicator, on the primary flight display (PFD) :

Other planes like a320-family don't have this problem.

Currently is this the best 737 available for flightgear despite its flaws ?

I like the Boeing 777, very successful, it would be interesting to have the same quality with a Boeing 737-NG

The 737-300 as available in FGAddon has implemented data from approved simulators, NTSB-reports and similar.
So highly recommended.
There was a bit of discussion between the authors (Link to be added later) but the end product is highly usable.

If it really needs to be the -800... Train until you can fly five consequitive traffic patterns to an acceptable standard and a raw data single engine ILS-approach in the -300.

This could buy same time until the people with the A320 get this plane done, then get bored and then might have motivation to deal with an airplane of 1960s-origin.

(just learning on another airplane prior being able to contribute.)

I can't speak for the rest of my teammates on the A320-Family, but I can tell you that having a coherent and organized team that is doing something sure makes it more likely others will join to fix a problem or improve things, even if occasionally and out of the sheer need for a change.

It likely would, but depending on your computer specifications and FlightGear settings and version it may or may not have a usable frame rate and/or missing features.

If bandwidth, time and storage is not an issue, just give it a try ;)
