Submission + - Sun bullies OpenDS developers-> 2 2

andy_from_nc writes: Neil Wilson has posted that he and all of the American developers on Sun's OpenDS project and the positions have been moved to France. In order to collect their severance benefits Sun required the developers to accept a governance change to the project which ensured Sun's control. Instead the developers resigned from the project (which allowed Sun to make the change anyhow) as they did not feel it was in the best interest of the project but could not afford to loose their benefits. Neil was probably the most prolific committer to the project as evidenced by the revision control logs. Sun has responded on the OpenDS users mail list saying that they did not ask the developers to resign and that the governance change was a return to a previous "Sun approved" revision.
