Yeah, i know that the initial dispute was covered and the possibility of forks and a fragmented user base were pondered, but that's not exactly what i was getting at.
I may be mistaken, but I have my suspicions that there was a hell of a lot more going on between Keith Packard, David Dawes and the other X developers than so-called governance issues and personality conflicts. I for one want to know what it was.
IMHO, disputes like this are indicative of future problems in the process of F/OSS development, and I'd like to know what the problem really was so that similar situations can be avoided (if possible).
Oh well, I guess if I might have the answers I seek were I more involved.
