My assumption has always been that the author of the EclipseZone post saw an
announcement from CollabNet, also saw something from Polarion and just
confused things by the time he got to a computer to blog the news of the
day. The article has been updated and I blogged a correction, so all should
be well. I just wanted to be sure users did not see the original
announcement and not the corrections. Of course getting confirmation that
Polarion did not make this claim is also helpful.
