Smile Will OpenBSD fork hurt development?

Hello OpenBSD friends,

I have used and purchased OpenBSD since the earliest OpenBSD version 3.4. It is a well designed OS and I support Theo's Strict and Secure philosophy for his OpenBSD Project.

This is my Question? Is the OpenBSD Fork to Bitrig going to effect the continued development of Theo's original OpenBSD platform? Is there less OpenBSD Developers now coding for the project?

There are some articles out there about the fork of OpenBSD that seem for imply that KEY Developers have move to Bitrig development. I am somewhat confused about that.

I really HOPE that the OpenBSD Project isn't hurt by this fork. Keep up the Good Work Theo and your Co-Developers. Thank you for any comments.

Signing off,
OpenBSD FAN and Supporter

Some discussion has already taken place on this site:

...& to answer your question, no one knows at this point.

Yes, but there are some very experienced key developers still associated with the project.

My suspicion (...& this is merely expressing an opinion. I don't have any more information than anyone else...), is that the OpenBSD project will be fine in the longer term.

The future is hard to predict. The past is only a guide, but it is our only guide. If we look to the recent past, while this situation has brewed, what does it suggest? Have those who follow the project development closely noticed any reduction in the rate of code commits or other signs of increased stagnation?

.. & OpenBSD will continue to breathe .. only fresh air .. because it's far up there .. and will certainly help others breathe that freshness as well ..

For Pete's sake, daemonfowl, you could've at least said this includes 7 GNU/Linux forks! Some people may have fragile hearts, arterial pressure problems or similar conditions you know?
