they'd need a different savannah name, but so what?

Right. They can fork if they want to. I honestly prefer if they didnt, but I am not in agreement with a structure that does not hold perment positions for the founding team.

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.

Not all GNU projects assign copyright to the FSF. But everything I wrote is GPL/LGPL'd so can be used by anyone for more GPL work. As far as why assignment is nessesary is a copyright ownership issue. You can research this more on the FSF website.

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

I like the project having a good user and develop base. But I dont want to be kicked out of this project. Anyone who tries would be showing a great disrepect and therefore I will not think of them as worthy of running the project. So I would rather have it fork and have a smaller/developer userbase.

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

Me too.
