The fork code offered by Ethcore puts an end to TheDAO:
We would like to give you the option to agree on another state of the world. In this state theDAO attacker would not be allowed to take control of the ether inside theDAO - nor would he or she be able to move or spend it.

We will offer you this choice through an optional update to the parity client that will move ether to a recovery contract that will allow DAO token holders to recover their ether. This will maintain consensus with other updates from the Geth team and the CPP team.

We also have statements from Vitalik:
and a Geth core dev:
all of which make clear that it's the community's decision.
