Original OSNews Interviews Yesterday we reported on the issue that surfaced between the project leaders of Gaim and Gaim-vv and we linked to the blog of the Gaim-vv developer. We now host a Q&A with the other side, Gaim's project leader and Google employee Sean Egan, who clears up a few things for us.

It states the position of the person somewhat maligned by the earlier blog post. If anything they probably should have asked him some questions before running the other story. People complain about a lot of things in their blogs, including the decisions others make in software projects. One party wants to take his ball and go home, because the work has been side-lined, but since people want webcam support in their IM clients, it turns into some grand conspiracy about whether Google is usurping gaim and turning it into Google Talk.

Drama in an open source project?! Never! The desire to start over from scratch?! When does that happen? It's almost as if it's like every other social group!
