I wouldn't count on the coup leaders' ability to manage a project much; all of this has all signs of power struggle rather than anything else. Specifically:
there are no governance rules set for the new project (aside from the committers are gods and admins are Gods)
there are no measurable goals given,
coup members' communication style still needs some improvement to reach the level of a very impatient high school bully,
their middle- and long-term planning ability seems to be rather non-existent
On the other hand, the drama is of exquisite mud-slinging kindergarten-quality.
