In a post on the official Enyo blog, the project has clarified earlier reports that the development team working on the cross-platform framework would be leaving Hewlett-Packard (HP) for Google. According to the post, "the majority of the engineering and leadership team" will remain with the project.

The project has also stated that the team would be "redoubling our efforts to continue development" and will hire more developers to replace the people who have left. Meanwhile, The Verge, which originally broke the story, has reaffirmed its reports that the developers "responsible for 99 per cent" of the Enyo code have left the project. While Enyo is an open source project, it seems to be "comprised mostly or entirely of HP employees at present", according to the publication.

The Enyo JavaScript application framework is a crucial part of HP's timetable for the release of Open webOS. The Enyo project says that the response to the release of Enyo 2 has been very positive and that the project welcomes contributions and GitHub pull requests from anyone.
