Hostile takeover of Open Source Project TWiki

...the company TWIKI.NET announced unilaterally that the best for the TWiki.org project would be for them to take over governance. With it comes a complete lock down of the community site. From that minute on, all long-time contributors have lost access to their code. Counter-reaction: the community has left the building, leaving TWIKI.NET without a contributing community.

This will be interesting to watch.

Heyya RC -

That actually is an interesting post, and it will be interesting to see what shakes out from it. I'll betcha VSloathe (our militant Open Source advocate) would have a thing or 3 to say about it. There are legal issues there that *might* be far reaching.

Thanks for the heads up!
