That's my assumption.

I happened to have brought this to Bram's attention when I got it. Bram
indicated that he didn't get a copy. I mailed Travis asking where he
got my email, and got this in reply:
"I sent this to friends, colleagues, and others I've seen participate in the
P2P space. Do you have any interest in getting involved?
So, generally, I find it a bit shady. I was somewhat concerned that he
was harvesting the bittorrent_help list, since that's the one I run.
This list was my second guess.
A couple of other interesting points: You'll notice that the note was
worded like a mailing list post, i.e. not addressed to any one person.
You'll notice that he's calling for a number of items that aren't in the
collective BitTorrent yet, possibly indicating that he's trying to make
a proprietary version or fork.
And someone pointed out this item:
