As Bogdan already revealed, our intentions is to produce a new design  
for the core that will address the scalability and security  
requirement in a completely different manner than the original project

better by going their own separate ways. As an eco-system we have  
matured enough in the last five years to be able to learn from and  
admit about our own mistakes in the past and look now at a better

Thanks for the good insight in why you don't want to join the effort,
but go your own way. If you have different ideas for the core than what

to join the effort. I did not realize that was the case, now I do
you better.

At the same time, there's something to be said for the old, solid and
non-forked original product... Abba is still more enjoyable than all the
forks... Ha ha!
