Oh, there's plenty of people embarassed, for sure. The FBI collected the
machines and we (my office at google) ended up paying for discounted
replacement machines from HP. I honestly don't know if they were ever
returned to the linux foundation.

When I say 'we know' I mean 'we know up to a point' we know how they got
in, who's keys they compromised and the rest, and they've learned from
their mistakes ,for sure.
