I've asked this before, but are there plans to move the code into the 
mainline kernel? This would increase user confidence & potentially 
increase the developer base, with the possible cost of a reduction in 
the level of your control over the code.

In answer to original question:

I really wouldn't worry about this issue. The code is a critial part of 
the Linux-HA architecture which is so widely adopted that it is likely 
to be picked up by someone else if Philipp/Linbit were to meet an 
unfortunate end (heaven forbid :-).
