Open Source?

  • An open source project is about people producing free and open software and contributing to something as a team for the benefit of others.
  • Open source projects reflect the spirit of collaboration and fun while garnering community feedback and providing good governance that allows for business to confidently invest in its development.
  • Open source projects are open to the participation of anybody who can contribute value and is willing to work with the community.
  • OpenSourceMatters

    I think that this is one of the best definitions of Open Source that I have seen. So many of the Open Source projects forget these tenants. The leaders seem to be off on some adolescent power trip – and beware anyone who questions, asks or even makes a small noise in the corner.

    I guess the beauty of Open Source is that the projects that are run like this will die off, and the better managed ones will succeed.
