Ok... I will first say, I'm just a casual "security reader" so take this for the $0.02 it's worth. Google may have just saved that project. By inviting the open source community to take over the project, it should mean the security stays open and transparent. Where as if the US Gov't gets what it wants and has backdoors built into encryption, google would have been forced to comply or tie the decision up in court for who-knows-how-long. Now, I could be completely off... maybe they got bored with it!
