Several Nagios community members have mentioned to me that, through various means, they have become aware of potential tensions present between Nagios Enterprises and Netways related to Nagios trademark usage. I have preferred to keep these matters private between our two companies in order to resolve issues amicably. The announcement of Icinga and the press exposure of it has made that more difficult.
Please note that there are ongoing legal actions that are being pursued regarding matters between our companies, so I cannot provide details on everything surrounding this to the community at the present time. We have recently received communication from Netways that indicates a resolution to these issues may be possible. As a result, we will work with our legal counsel and Netways to see this issue to completion.
