Technically speaking, it’s not being scrapped at all. In one sense, it means MU is becoming the standard, as of the merger.
What I’d like to know is what they plan on doing with mu.wordpress.org, and more importantly the forums. Are they going to be merged? Are we going to have to mingle with all those old-time stand-aloners? Must we bump elbows now? *shudder* I heard they make their martini’s with vodka instead of gin.
