What is the relationship between Roslyn and the Common Compiler Infrastructure (CCI) project?

I keep seeing parts of CCI in the Roslyn codebase but I'm wondering if CCI will be continued or if there are plans to merge the two projects, or something else.

Roslyn took a fork of CCI, removed the bits we didn't need, and made substantial changes to improve performance. There are no plans to maintain Roslyn's fork of CCI as a general-purpose API for use outside the Roslyn compilers.
