Non-Traditional Model of Software development

| No TrackBacks

Sourceforge is a testament to the multitude of projects that either fork or eventually get ethered without serving much useful purpose.. Nonetheless I would argue that there are a number of SF hosted projects that are thriving and quite useful.

Hmm, I wonder what these guys think about the Summer of Code? I'm clear that companies like Google, would encourage the various project owners (principals) Apache, Moodle, OpenSolaris, OLPC, Mozilla, and others to build to definite specifications. I couldn't imagine that it would be otherwise.

I suppose it is difficult to fathom the shear amount of work that these projects are delivering to the community. Even those very close to the activity can easily become befuddled.
