I think calling it stolen is a poor choice of words. It was a community decision, nothing was "stolen."

> Hi Emeric,
> Oracle and Sonatype are working closely together. Sonatype had been doing a lot of work already and it was the same kind of things that we had been talking about. You'll see more code coming from Oracle as well now that we are mostly caught up after having parts of the Hudson infrastructure stolen away from us during the Jenkins fork. Winston and team have been working to getting the infrastructure back to normal, which is just about done. Now they are looking forward to cranking out some code.
> The driver of Hudson should be the community. Oracle is fully backing the project so it will continue to grow and be supported. We are putting more resources on it every week. We welcome everybody who wants to constructively participate.
> As far as governance goes, we are hoping to make things more formal and post something soon. We are leaning towards an Eclipse model where there is a lead (Winston) and a PMC. I suggested this to Cloudbees and Andrew when we were discussing things in December, but Sacha thought that was too formal/heavyweight so I dropped it as a compromise. That is why it was not in any of the documents we posted so far. Now that they have forked, we are leaning towards it again. I think following a well-proven process is better than making one up on our own, and I am interested in hearing others thoughts as well.
