Well, thanks for deflating the hype.  So, according to you, the hype
about the grand merge with the community is indeed just hype.

Look, either it's going to happen or people need to stop hyping it as
if it is going to happen.  Since both positions are coming out of Red
Hat at the moment and those of us involved in community governance
(i.e. us in FESCo) are still somewhat in the dark, it will be really
nice to see the truth of the situation.

So?  My comments weren't about gnome versus kde.  I have no reason to
expect other than that portions of the project which receive the
greater number of developers from wherever in the community will make
the most progress.  My comments are about whether Red Hat plans to be
just a part of the community, and your comments seem to answer than in
the negative.  Which is directly contradictory to what other folks
from Red Hat have been saying.

This statement also contradicts statements from others at Red Hat.  It
would be really nice to know just what is actually going to happen.
