Salaries for skilled reverse engineers are rising, there is a lot of demand. NSA was having a hard time locking in new guys into a tool that they cant take to another employer. There is also less incentive to keep it private in the days of Bninja, Hopper et al pressing to establish themselves as a cheap(er) IDA-Alternative.

Or maybe they cant update it because they cant find Skilled reverse engineers !
as the Javabased NSAdebugger has started years ago and now they though that is nice day of sharing on github ? & voluntary upgrading it and one day frame it with any backdoor?

I agree, by publishing the source code of their tool, they get many interested reverse engineers to look at it and if possible, contribute to it. So in the end they get improvements to their software for free. Without having to maintain the tool they can focus again on the real work and spy on people. Clever move, NSA.

Question is... in their line of work, could they actually use this "community-maintained" tool? There could be vulnerabilities/backdoors there...

A move to appear as good willed. An ancient version or a flag there.

I found a a page from Wikileaks called EDG Tools of the Trade. Ghidra is mentioned there alongiside with IDA Pro and other tools they use to create backdoors.
