I think that Gunnar’s posting results from a misunderstanding of the word “branch”. This may be the result of a poor translation in the German article. But I can’t read German so I can’t tell the source of confusion for sure.
Eclipse is not being split up. “Branch” in the context of the the eWeek article is referring to growing new projects into new areas. This is all normal growth, and is consistent with the Roadmap document we published back in March.
There is no new structure being contemplated at the Foundation. We are expecting to continue to recruit new Strategic Members and new projects. A few projects may re-align over time if it makes sense. But we’re definitely not “splitting up”.
