First let me state that I'm not involved enough to to make any statement
on who does how much work. I just want to throw in some general

I don't see the point. Once again I have no idea who wrote most of the
code and you may own the domain, but the project? Hey, this is free
software. You, Dan, should appreciate that they are discussing things
instead of taking the sources and forking their own project. Granted
they'd need a different savannah name, but so what?

The last time I checked your code was GPLed, wasn't it? So why do you
have to assign it away? Besides, I know there was some talk about phpgw
becoming a GNU project. Did this happen? If so I guess everyone had to
assign his code to FSF anyway.

Actually I don't think phpgw will have enough roots to exist twice. But
time may tell ...

I'm sad to see such a power struggle here yet again.
