Dead and alive are not the only choices. I would choose "stalled".

Also, have you used Cobra? What problems, if any, did you encounter?

I had used it to create an IDE for Cobra using mono and gtk  https://github.com/pyros2097/CobraIDE.It looked a lot like monodevelop or XCode. But then I abandoned it as I didn't get enough time and went on with creating an IDE/Studio for libgdx in Java Swing. Cobra is a very good language which has many things I wanted in a programming language which many languages don't have like contracts,events,link libs directly in you main file, things like that make development a lot easier. But since it was tied to .Net/Mono? environment it became a hassle for building packages and porting to other OS's. But now I was looking into compiled languages that are becoming popular these days like Go, Crystal, Orange, Pony  http://www.ponylang.org/. And Pony seemed to be somewhat like Cobra.

Anyway I was planning to mirror the source code to github so that I would have a reference on this language.In case maybe in the future I might be creating a programming language. I wanted to keep that as a reference. So even if is stalled it would be good it you made an organization and put the source, documentation over there so that It would be useful for people to directly read the source and get some ideas. I'm also going to try to convert the svn project to git.  https://github.com/pyros2097/cobra-lang

PS: This seemed to be another language for the JVM which was stalled and now is back alive.
