The Jitsi Community just got a lot stronger. BlueJimp is now apart of Atlasssian: http://goo.gl/QORThN

I don't know the Jitsi community, so I don't know how heavy BlueJimp is in terms of development input, but I'm guessing they're heavy, because that's what my prejudice about CLA projects tells me.

So yours is a very important point. I didn't consider that aspect.

https://medium.com/@chadwallacehart/atlassian-acquires-jitsi-what-it-means-f313621cfbcb analysis says acquisition all about Jitsi Video Bridge, which probably makes sense. JVB is a lot more successful in its space than the Jitsi clients (desktop and web) are in theirs. It may well make sense for Altassian to continue working on JVB but not on the clients.

All the posts on continued open source development are entirely serious. Not sure why we need to be imagining all possible negative scenarios but why don't we give it some time and see how it goes?

Everyone at the team is super excited and running a way with the source is no one's plan (even if it was: the code is out there and no one can unpublish it). 

So let's all relax and think about the good sides. Like ... what would it be to have multiplied resources working on the project?

I'm super eager to see what having multiplied resources working on Jitsi projects does! I'd like to see competition from Jitsi lead to Skype, Hangouts, and many others to open source and interoperate or close down. How's that for a relaxed thought? :-)
