I don't think it's a "split", but AMK is using ZODB internally at his
job, and externally with his own projects, so I can see him wanting to
have some control over the distribution that he uses.  

Other than that, there could be other reasons, we, for example, do not
provide a mechanism for community checkin privledges, Sourceforge
does.  I don't think we have a ZODB specific mailing list, sourceforge
offers this.

That being said, I'm pretty sure we've allways kept up with Andrew's
patches and suggestions, and we'd be happy to create a mailing list.

Andrew has also extended any developer at DC checkin privledges at the
sourceforge project; although I suspect we'll just continue to check
into our CVS and he'll "sync" with us that which he wants.  I am, in
particular, barely not lazy enough to check stuff into branches, much
less whole other repositories. ;)

It's just open source.  More power to him in my opinion.  He's
definatly taking Zope and ZEO to new levels and audiences.
