as noted, if forks of a project survive, is that project really dead? or just shifted?
for example, when ethereal forked and all the developers started working on a project called 'wireshark' did the ethereal project die, or was it just renamed?
so with google stopping the wave project, but other people using the code and continuing to develop it, is wave dead or just undergoing reorganisation?
the drop in support from Google is a big inflection point, things will be very different now, but it's unclear what this really means. As a google project it's dead, but many of the same developers are working on the code still, so is wave really dead?
