Submission + - Nagios is Forked (computerworlduk.com)

Glyn Moody writes: "Forks are an important feature of free software: they ensure that projects stick close to their users. But they are also a danger, since they can split the developer community. That makes forks a rare event, and the following announcement rather exciting: "A group of leading Nagios protagonists including members of the Nagios Community Advisory board and creators of multiple Nagios Addons have launched ICINGA — a fork of Nagios, the prevalent open source monitoring system." So were they right to fork, and will Nagios, Icinga — or both — flourish in the long run?"
