What does this mean for the future of Replicant?

In your view, what are the chances of someone else resurrecting it as a software project (that is, ignoring the commercial aspects), or of a meaningful number of developers switching to Replicant/another fork?

In related news, Google is doing what it can to restrict all Android forks:

One of the good things of open source projects: Forks can arise.

Yes, this is us

I've read they're the core developers of Cyanogen that disagree with the business part and will continue on their own.
