Dan Gillmor: "The debate over the future of the RSS--the 'Really Simple Syndication' format that has helped turn weblogs into harbingers of a powerful information future--has been fascinating and, in ways, dispiriting to this distant observer.
Plainly, this move won't cause peace to suddenly break out in the RSS format war. But equally plainly, this looks like a positive step toward some resolution of a dispute where personal pique has threatened to derail entirely appropriate professional and technological debates."
Chuq Von Rospach: "Dave's transferred control of RSS 2.0 to a neutral party. He maintains some say over it's future directions, but it's no longer a Dave/Userland production. It's now a community property, as I think it should be."
