No, he is leaving because he realized that not everyone is going to
automatically side with him on these matters.
And in case you all do not realize it yet, there is no fork. So all this crap
he is blasting out is stupid. There is only an SF project that hosts code for
the exact same program, with no real changes to them.

without checking the facts. See for yourself. There is a possibility of a
fork, but no such thing exists at present.
