I am not concerned if RHT wants to keep the HornetQ product, branding,
and trademark. That's perfectly within their right to do so. It
appears the renaming and other steps effectively mitigate most
I am concerned that there was a donation of code and a plan to make
the communities a single community, all while it seems that the
HornetQ open source project and community are continuing to develop
that same codebase and community external to the ASF as well as inside
the ASF (often by the same people working in both communities.)
