Is there something up with the maptools.org server? I haven't seen
Stephen's original email.

Personally, I think that forking is an outcome that no one wants and
it should be avoided at all costs. This discussion is motivated by a
common desire to reduce duplicated effort, not multiply it.

I don't think any hasty moves are necessary, either. I'm glad that
we're flushing out people's concerns. If, for example, it turns out
that the ka-Map and OpenLayers dev teams wind up having to implement a
ka-Map compatibility API in OpenLayers to support people's existing
ka-Map applications, that can probably be arranged.
