It's getting a bit sad, but it looks like all of us hardly find motivation and/or time to work on phpMyAdmin. There are tons of feature requests which are not being solved and nobody seems to be really interested in them. It looks like project needs fresh blood. Where to find it? Nobody contributed more patches so that he could be invited into project.
I believe there must be plenty of skilled developers using phpMyAdmin all over the world, but why they do not contribute?
