Am I just being cynical?

A few days ago I noticed a blog post over at SpringSource that announced the intention to move dm Server across to the Eclipse Foundation.

I haven't been attending enough geek meetings lately to appreciate what is going on in the world of OSGi, or the politics of the VMware acquisition of SpringSource for that matter.

A cynical person might observe such an announcement and think, "that project has been identified as not being aligned with the core business, so it is being abandoned in the nicest possible way". Today I might be that cynical person.

The optimist in me is hoping that the Eclipse Foundation can make the system into something that takes off and provides as much benefit as the Eclipse IDE did when IBM released that.

Time will tell.
