Basic as in ...?
I'm not sure what you mean by that. Could you elaborate?

Yes. A better analysis of the situation.

Tools, frameworks, compiler backends, convenience-non-accelerating hardware (CF HD, Network, etc.) are coming, the retro movement brings new users, it is not going to be explosively fast but if everyone does their part of the job there will be an Amiga market eventually as long as the historically significant machines are targeted. (Retro fans do not care about new hardware by definition unless it is spec-identical to the original one.)

The only things which are required are: contribute, be patient, rinse, repeat.
