Oracle + Kenai : clarifying the message …

Last week, when publishing a serie of webcasts explaining the Oracle + Sun product strategy, Oracle clearly announced the end of Sun’s sponsored source forge

Today, Oracle sent a very different message to the community and recognized they poorly communicated about this.  To summarize it : current plans are to reuse infrastructure to power another Sun’s sponsored source forge : (hosting projects such as GlassFish, OpenSSO and OpenESB amongst others).

Communities and projects currently hosted on will be migrated to 

Is it really a poorly executed communication ?  Or does Oracle step back due to community feedback ?

Should the later be correct, this is a good sign that Oracle is (very) quickly learning how to deal with the many communities it inherits when acquiring Sun Microsystems.
