When Oracle laid claim to the name Hudson and the Hudson community decided that converting to Jenkins was the way to go, I thought that meant Hudson would become Jenkins and we'd all go from there.
Instead, it appears things are going to be more complicated than that. Hudson seems to be an ongoing concern. Jenkins has been forked and now plugin developers are faced with supporting multiple systems, or choosing one or the other. That's going to be a fragmenting problem.
So my question here is just how solid is Hudson and what's being done to retain the plugin development community?
