A new home for basho/cuttlefish

Whilst bet365 did buy the Basho IP, they have emphasised that the entire catalogue of repositories is to be handed over to the community and that they are not intending to be an overarching authority on decision making, but will steer the project just as much as any other involved parties would. So, from my perspective, it is not a decision for bet365 to take, but for the community as a whole.

Personally, I don't see a lot of merit in moving the repo away from its current home at this point in time. Once the legal processes have concluded and people have the facility to manage the repository configurations, anyone interested in contributing and maintaining can be added - enabling the RabbitMQ team to work on Cuttlefish without the upheaval of moving repositories around. When the dust has settled, then revisit the question of spinning the project out into its own org.

What's everyone else's thoughts on this?

Hi Luke,
The Kyorai org is a collection of (ex)basho projects that have been forked and maintained outside of basho for a while now. While it was a bit of a scattered effort in the beginning the demise of basho ended up causing us to collect them in a central place.

How things go forward really depends a bit on how things go forward with riak and the basho PI, and the community around it.
