   Open source request....

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hey folks...

how does one make an open source project... ?

It might seem like a stupid question and a simple thing but I'm toying with 
the idea of making my computergrid.net an open source project . 

One of the best things (I think) about us English speaking countries is our 
ability to share and grow... sounds corny perphaps.. but I believe it's true.

and as an ardent open source user myself, I certainly prefer open-source 
products over proprietory ones. But you just can't get around the fact that 
there are some people who have unique skills in certain areas (and are 
missing other parts of their brain in compensation).

but there are undoubtably lots of issues...  and I have basic questions that 
relate to financial survival so forth... not that I'm struggling or anything 
like that I just would prefer things to go up rather than down...

If there are people that have gone through this process and it has helped them 
then I'd certainly like to hear any comments (on list).

The two big ones that I know of are probably red-hat and mysql. They've done 
quiete well. But others haven't. Jabber is one of those xml protocols that I 
haven't heard mentioned much and to me that seems like a bit of a failure. So 
it's obviously a mixed bag.

Any first hand comments, suggestions or pointers would be appreciated.
