Not quite a correct analogy. The Drupal core team does not "fork" Drupal
in different directions, and the version numbers indicate features + API

Someone who was using tinymce 4.7 and happens to upgrade to tinymce
5.x-1.x will get a big surprise over 5.x-1.1 for example. The migration path
may be totally broken.

Can't remember the music on that one, but Sir Sean was awesome.

But, if drupal-id.com is out (I assume "out" means you guys leave him a
on 5.x-1.x, and go with 5.x-2.x), then what is the fuss about? He can still
to your branch if he wants to, unless he is banned, and I don't think we
want to
that (at least not now).

What about the users who will download tinymce.

Sorry for interfering, but I am concerned about features and upgrade path
from older tinymce versions, and about user confusion.

Should I hold off commenting until the team has a plan?

Feel free to correct the misconceptions I (or others) have.
Drupal development, customization and consulting.
