Yehuda Katz on Merging into Merb

,----[ Quote ]
| In December of 2008, the Ruby on Rails
| community was at a crossroads. The mainline
| Rails project was losing ground to Merb, an
| alternative open source MVC framework for
| building Ruby applications. The community was
| fragmenting. Yehuda Katz was the creator of
| the Merb framework, and rather than continue
| on with that project, he and his fellow
| contributors decided to merge Merb and Rails.
| The decision sparked a number of Rails
| homecomings for other outside projects, and in
| February the first beta of an integrated Rails
| 3.0 arrived. We sat down with Katz to discuss
| the past, present and future of Ruby on Rails.
