Well, he hasn't _specifically_ said he's off to Ubuntu but lets not split hairs.

I don't think you are in the minority thinking it is a shame when a
contributor leaves a project. I only really follow the lists these
days but there are names you come to recognise due the frequency with
which they appear and David's was one. I do think this is a very
unfortunate episode and think the time is probably ripe for a
re-enforcing of Fedora's position on Mono and would invite FESCo or
the FPL to make one.

I for one would welcome the introduction of the above for Fedora. Lets
not get snooty - its perfectly good but would need some modification
as Fedora doesn't have a SABDFL. It would also be good to take some
positives from all of this.
