Intalio is the newly branded name of the old Exoffice people.

Last Summer they asked about incorporating the Endeavors stuff
into their open source offering. They burned through their initial
round of angel funding as an open source company and it looks
like they are now refinanced and going after the e-commerce
process space based on their press release on the 21st. From
last October they were fairly buzzword heavy. Below
is a posting they sent out last October.

At the time it seemed like vaporware. They are still only claiming
to be able to deliver RosettaNet and Biztalk in Q4. It'll be
interesting to see where they head.

Is Apple looking for an eBusiness process integration
engine and supporting open source platform? Hell, we'll
give you one for free.
