Somebody should write a Geek Opera about the open source world, because sometimes it's more fun trying to untangle the plot-line than it is using the actual software. ;)

As for the proposed merger: if their combined effort is going to produce a better product, then go for it. If competition is going to produce a better product, then they should stay apart. By the way they are talking though, it sounds like the former is a better idea.

Hmm "copying" my name.. are you a fork? OSS projects should work together. If this happens it will show strength and can be used as an example for other projects.
