I'm interested that OilRush seems to be largely (entirely?) naval; it's an interesting angle for an RTS, and hasn't been done much justice in the past (to my recollection, at least).
The announcement dates from shortly after the denial of Doug Lombardi.
P.S.: Sorry for the double post.
Haven't they found that engineer yet...? Or maybe they're looking for more than one. There are more than a handful of competent Linux software engineers so it'd surprise me if no one has applied yet.
