I am also expecting that the decision will fragment our community. We
have been working together among a few distros, we gave each other space
in the spot light when there is a launch party, we all help but we let
the distro having the release had the show for themselves. We will have
their support in the same way for our release. We work together for big
events like FLISOL and SFD. I will be very sad that some one came along
a poison this integration.
