Unfortunately it seems  trouble is indeed afoot.
I would move on is  while you still can.

They have of course registered a non-profit company called  'Koha Software
Foundation'.  Unless they agree to hand that over to a  foundation formed by
the community, then:
- a community formed  foundation will not be able to use that name;
- using a similar name could  be subject to challenge by Liblime, at least 
the US; and
- if 'Koha  Software Foundation' becomes active in the future, then there
will be two  Koha projects competing, for example, for grant funding.

A better  outcome would be for Liblime to rejoin discussions about formation
of a  foundation.
