As far as I can tell, no-one intends to say that. What several people
*are* saying, some subtly and some not, is... well, this project is
not likely to go anywhere useful; it appears to be a group of people
disgruntled with one project wandering off to find somewhere they can
write about how disgruntled they are and tell everyone You're Doing It

All in all, that seems a fair thing to warn the WV community about.
Whether they choose to do anything, how they choose to handle these
people, is up to them; but there's absolutely nothing wrong with
someone saying - look out for this, it might be messy.
