"Netways, a German company that supports and contributes to Nagios, is among those behind Icinga. As the new project team's site indicates, 'This team currently consists of members of the previous Nagios community advisory board, developers of numerous Nagios extensions and Netways, the organiser of the Conference on Nagios and provider of the NagiosExchange platform.' Although it is certainly natural and even beneficial to have some commercial backing of a fork, the extent to which this represents Netways' efforts to establish itself as the German company and community for Nagios seems unclear. I would also add that this is the only reference from Icinga on Netways, other than the team page which highlights three of seven founding members working on Netways-related projects with Nagios."
