The Amiga RGB to VGA monitor adapter has been a popular product in our Amiga Store since 2004. We have now updated our product design with an option for either unbuffered or buffered adapter, new enclosure and refreshed printed colour instructions.
I am not sure why Amigakit need to do that, they do it on the RGB to SCART leads too. There's a seller on eBay who sells the same leads but with the 23pin proper connector. I can only assume when someone finds something they squirrel all the stock away so no other seller can buy.
Its a bit like the issue with the A1200 Vampire. They cite a problem getting hold of the connectors that go on the A1200's expansion header, yet Jens at Individual Computing happily keeps producing A1200 accelerators with no apparent issue with connectors.
For a hobbyist market there is no collaboration - all the way through to the various nextgen OSes.

With 3D printing getting better and more affordable, I can imagine that it could be possible to print the 23-pin connectors. This only is a solution if the numers are rather low. I can imagine that this 3D-printing can also be a solution for other hard to source connectors. The metal-work (male/female pins) should be available.
