<http://foswiki.org/> presents Foswiki as 'The heir of TWiki'. 

Concerning code, <http://twiki.org/> reaffirms:

> TWiki is GPLed software. The Perl CGI source code, templates and
> documentation is available for free.

However, the fork appears to be significant:

<http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/TWiki/TWikiHistory>
<http://twiki.net/>

As TWiki is used for Chandler Project and other OSAF wikis: 

 * might the recent news impact in any way on plans for development of the
wiki?

key points from an article describing the 'Hostile takeover of Open Source
Project TWiki'. 

<http://foswiki.org/Community/NextWiki> recognises ownership of the NextWiki
trademark.
