I think there is still hope for Bukkit/CraftBukkit however perhaps there will always be hope. Mojang has been silent on the issue for awhile and unless something is going on that we aren't aware of, it appears nothing is happening for the time being. Sure, some people comitted to upadating the project, but this was months ago before the DMCA was even issued. It's hard to tell whether Microsoft will want to take action on this, as rcade said, they only officially aquired Mojang about a week ago. It's hard to tell at the moment where Bukkit/CraftBukkit will end up, or if it will remain on this same course, only time will tell. As of now though, like others have said, there is always hope.
