I wanted to try out the add-on and immediately hit problems.
I'm not asking for fixes (I can do that) - I'm just wondering if it's worth it.
We're going to push out a fairly disruptive, but hopefully beneficial update to start enforcing some permissions and workflow upon our users. But we also want to have a light touch, so being able to easily review a workflow and edit it - avoiding massive productivity disruptions and rollbacks - is a must.
It looks like plone.app.workflowmanager is really a must-have.
Even if only the workflow visualization works, that's a huge benefit.
Is it actually worth it to spend my time fixing this up for us (and everyone)? Be Honest.
I know it's great for Plone to keep these add-ons working, but I need to justify my time to my employer. I'm on the fence here and it feels risky to dive into this.

Started poking at this, but found that @thet created a py3 branch (yay) and tried that but couldn't get the plugin to install. I didn't like the look of this rabbit hole:
