James has a REALLY important point here. Let the fork happen and quit
arguing over which party renames their widget. It's just a rename,
that can be changed at any time. The harm this mudslinging is causing
to our shared cause of gEDA continuing.

I would like to point out that for gEDA to be healthy we need new
users and old ones. Adopting a CAD package (even a free one) is a bug
time investment in libraries and designs. No one is going to take a
chance on something if the people making it have this much vitriol
over a name or who changes their widgets name.

Just let it go. None of this is more important than loosing users.
