Will Marlin and Pantheon Files merge back?

I don't claim to know the reasons for the original fork, but it would be great if you could work together. Pantheon files seems to have no real development any more, and so many bugs...

It's not like there's anything worth to merge back.

Open 2 windows one marlin and one pantheon-file and tell me the reals differences between the two. pantheon-file is just a dumbed down version of marlin without settings. Just a rebranded version with some string changes that's about it.
The fork is not even complete as actually the pantheon-file package still conflicts with the marlin one. So u can't even open two windows to compare (not at the same time ;) )

I already talk with theses guys they're just interested in control / ownership, they don't want to collaborate, they just want people to believe they' re developing a file manager while nobody is really working on it. Another day for another useless fork that's what elementary do. It's almost a year since the fork happened and no real bugs have been fixed, no merge has been requested.

Theses guys are just parasites, they just want to leech.

That sounds pretty terrible. I am packaging the Pantheon desktop for openSUSE. Is it worth packaging marlin as an alternative or is it unmaintained?

Can you help with this problem?
