The good news is that nobody is threatening to take their ball and go home, but some conflict continues. It's going to be painful, as someone said, for Autodesk and DM Solutions to walk back their big brand-name announcements, but the majority of active MapServer users seem to want their program to be the sole owner of that name within the new foundation. Some of the founders feel that the opinions of these vocal folks are outweighed by the needs of another silent majority, the potential new users attracted by a capital F Foundation and the name Autodesk. Is this pie in the sky? We'll see soon enough.
Update: It looks like the community will be accomodated. Great news to end a tumultuous week.
