But what of the *development* of the code? If business-as-usual
is both sides independently developing the codebase, then
how does that address what is, I guess, a main issue? Is the
idea that the ASF contribute code which is then consumed
by TDF and that any patches to TDF remain unaccessible to
the ASF? Does this result in the communities driving closer
together or farther apart?
