I can tell you that we have no interest in splintering the community or our
efforts.

Like an Apache project we all come together in Spoon from various companies
and interests. We've just highlighted a few spots that we all are wanting
to develop on a large scale (more than just a bug fix or a few lines of
docs).

We would hope that through discussion and development that our plans and
everyone else should line up. We just are trying to have more structure.
That way if someone wants to get involved but doesn't know where, they
could always look to Spoon as a supporting organization that provides some
direction.
