Re: OpenMeetings accepted for Apache Incubator

Hi Sebastian,
when you presented OpenMeetings at the OL European Meeting in 2007, it was clear the project was promising.
The hard part is to continously improve what you conceive and realize. This is a great result!
Congratulations!!

Congratulations, Sebastian! You have worked very hard for so many
years on the project, and it's fantastic that you managed to get
Apache interested in it.

Adobe preparing Proposals for Flex and BlazeDS for Apache Incubation

Hi,

Adobe has publicly announced that they are preparing Proposals for the Apache Foundation:
http://blogs.adobe.com/flex/2011/11/your-questions-about-flex.html

Quote:What specifically is Adobe proposing?

We are preparing two proposals for incubating Flex SDK and BlazeDS at the Apache Software Foundation.

In the previous announcement they announced that they will use their own Foundation. Which potentially could lock-out 3th parties. If its an ASF project things are different.

It might be worth (if Adobe's Proposal will be accepted) if the team of OpenLaszlo thinks about contributing to that project too.
There is no barrier anymore to benefit from the wide acceptance of Flex. Once it is part of the ASF OpenLaszlo could profit from sharing the dev costs with others.

Customers will not care about the battle between OL and Flex at all in the end but for OpenLaszlo it is a chance to get on the road again.

But it is still an early stage, it seems like there has been no contact between Adobe and Apache Foundation yet and there is no statement yet how ASF will react on a potential Proposal.

Sebastian

Re: [Laszlo-dev] Adobe preparing Proposals for Flex and BlazeDS for Apache Incubation

Oh, sorry, double posted this. Looks like Seb was faster. :-)

I can only agree with him on the idea to contribute OpenLaszlo to the
ASF. I don't believe Laszlo will be able to maintain OpenLaszlo in a
way that it is a relevant HTML5 platform without growing support from
companies and a stronger community.

I think that Adobe has a good chance that Flex will be an ASF project
at some point. They already have a project in the incubator with
PhoneGap/Callback, which is one of the more promising projects
incubated by ASF:
http://incubator.apache.org/projects/callback.html

Re: [Laszlo-dev] Adobe preparing Proposals for Flex and BlazeDS for Apache Incubation

For the PhoneGap/Apache Callback project, IBM is one of the
co-sponsors, as Arstechnica reported:
http://arstechnica.com/open-source/news/2011/10/phonegap-to-become-an-apache-project-as-adobe-acquires-nitobi.ars
"Adobe and Nitobi are moving PhoneGap to the non-profit Apache
Software Foundation (ASF), where it will be developed as an Apache
Incubator project called Callback. The proposal—which is still be
reviewed by the ASF—is cosponsored by IBM, another major PhoneGap
contributor. Coordinating future PhoneGap development through the ASF
will ensure that the project continues to benefit from an open
governance model."
