Now that Mer was publically announced, the Cordia Project also decided to join in with their announcement:
Mer was publicly announced today.
It's time to make it official, that Cordia HD's upstream distribution is... Mer.
Cordia HD is one of the user experiences built on top of Mer provided core Linux distribution using Mer's hardware adaptations to run on specific devices. See Mer's README.
We feel that basing Cordia HD on Mer will give us solid base to grow.
So the momentum for Mer is growing, just like it should 😉
