well, let's be honest: Merging communities can be a very difficult thing 
(from both sides)

I don't think it's a problem to have two CMIS projects. I think the 
important thing is that
each project is able to build a "healthy" community around code of great 
quality and that
the communications/processes are transparent.

I understand that from the outside it looks odd to have two or even 
several projects of the same topic, but evolution is variation (with some
balance though ;-)
