I think this is a difficult statement to prove or disprove.
You're comparing a hypothetical state (MeeGo 1.3 if development were still
100% when it launched) to a future state (SLP turned Tizen 1.0).
This is one of those "we'll never know".
In any case, the situation we're faced with is that: there is no Tizen
codebase, repository or even community infrastructure right now. The choices
a) continue working with MeeGo as it is today, given the infrastructure
b) stop, wait for the new releases and resume from there once they open up
At this point, it looks to me like a no-brainer decision. The big question
will come when Tizen has something to show and the community can join. In the
meantime, the community can do some soul-searching and figure out how it wants
to answer that question.
And as more information on Tizen becomes available, the community can start
adjusting MeeGo to go in that same direction (assuming aligning is what it
chooses to do).
