+1 @ what t3sserakt said.

GNUnet is a project of utter importance and especially valuable.
Secushare is a project of utter importance and especially valuable.
Both projects joining forces to a team up increases importance and value by 
Mutually realizing and accepting, that's why the team up happened in the first 
We need an internet replacement; one which is the amazing tool we thought we 
have with it, before realizing what we actually have are chains; one which 
strenghens our liberty/freedom - libre, secure, privacy-protecting - one which 
is like wings for us.
GNUnet & secushare as a team are the best approach I've come across so far for 
building such an internet replacement.
That's why I support both projects wherever I can.

The heated discussion in this thread gave me a lot more insight into what's 
going on than I've known so far. Still, towards these tensions I'm pretty much 
a by-stander. Being in this naive position, it feels a bit bold to even just 
say anything regarding that. But I still do it - just trying to help:
If I understand that right, we wouldn't had a problem here, at all, in the 
first place, if 3 GNUnet key components on which secushare development highly 
depends on, would be just fine: CADET, core and transport.
And as I got the impression, all these 3 components are in the process of being 
revised to fit like that, but that process is a ton of work and therefore lasts 
Development has to make fun, and has to be done fundamentally stone by stone - 
you don't just build a roof.
I could imagine, that a good middle ground, a good way forward would be, if 2 
things change:
1. Secushare people help GNUnet people more with development of CADET, core and 
2. GNUnet people focus their work more on paving the way for secushare people 
to do their secushare development in a way, which makes more sense, is more 
sustainable, and more fun. Maybe by a motivating one-by-one roadmap, finishing 
one corner stone after another for building a way for secushare people to move 
forward. Maybe something like, 'At first we fix core, then CADET, and then 
transport, and then all obstacles for secushare development are our of the 

We gotta hold together, that's what makes us strong, and appreciate eath other,
