"In a message on the MeeGo email list today, Carsten Munk
proposes the Mer project as a sustainable way for MeeGo and other
communities to work with Tizen. Munk explains that many MeeGo
project contributors originated from the Mer project, which stood
for Maemo Reconstructed. "We were big on open governance, open
development and open source," he says.
Munk says that the resurrected Mer project is not intended to be
anti-Intel or anti-Tizen; instead, the project plans to collaborate
with the new Tizen efforts.
