NEWS: Sourceforge 2.0


<quote>
...

This month SourceForge announced an open beta period for a new set of
tools for developers, and well as a new directory for users searching
for open source software. On the forge side, our engineers have begun
work on new and better tools for project members who want to use our
tracker, wiki, and source code management.  We also have a new open
source project management environment. And there's more to come.

If you want to try out SourceForge 2.0, you can register a project at
http://sourceforge.net/register-project and specify that you want to
create the new project on the SF 2.0 beta. SourceForge Product Director
Nate Oostendorp says, "We're going to continue to enhance and improve
the beta tools, and also look for improvements to the downloads and
stats interfaces coming soon. Once we have stability, feature parity,
and a data migration path with the existing tools, the new forge tools
will replace the existing developer interface."

"We want to give you an early look as we continue to release early and
often," says Senior Director of Engineering Dean Henrichsmeyer.

Adobe Systems is the first major name to take advantage of the new
forge. Open <at> Adobe (http://sourceforge.net/adobe/
) aggregates Adobe's
open source programs, with source code hosting for projects such as the
Adobe Flex framework, as well as contributions from Adobe to standards
organizations, and also specifications.

NEWS: Open Source Android Now Top Selling Smartphone Operating System

http://www.developer.com/daily_news/article.php/408062

For the first time since 2007, Blackberry isn't the number one selling smartphone operating system - Android is.

Mashable's Adam Ostrow reported today that NPD Group has ranked Google's Android as the number one top selling mobile OS for the second quarter of 2010.

"NPD has the race at Android – 33 percent, RIM – 28 percent, and Apple – 22 percent for the period, noting that it's the first time since Q4 2007 that the BlackBerry maker hasn't been number one," Ostrow said. "RIM is pinning much of its hopes on getting back on top with its new BlackBerry 6 operating system and the BlackBerry Torch smartphone, the latter of which was revealed yesterday.

Enlightened Indian Movie?

www.sitasingstheblues.com
http://www.sitasingstheblues.com/watch.html
Source: blogs.suntimes.comUSA, December 23, 2008 (By Roger Ebert, film critic):

I received a DVD with a whimsically named movie, “Sita Sings the Blues,” and
almost did not watch it. And then I finally did. My reaction? I am enchanted. I
am swept away. I am smiling from one end of the film to the other. It is
astonishingly original.

Nina Paley, the animated movie’s author, begins with the story of Ramayana,
which is known to every school child in India but not to me. Paley depicts the
story with exuberant drawings in bright colors.

Of course there is a lot more to it than that, involving a monkey army, a
lustful king who occasionally grows 10 heads, synchronized birds, a chorus line
of gurus, and a tap-dancing moon. It coils around and around, as Indian epic
tales are known to do. Even the Indians can’t always figure them out. In
addition to her characters talking, Paley adds another level of dialogue: Three
voice-over modern Indians, ad-libbing as they try to get the story straight. Was
Sita wearing jewelry or not? How long was she a prisoner in exile? How did the
rescue monkey come into the picture? These voices are as funny as an SNL skit,
and the Indian accent gives them charm.

Beginning in Chicago, I will enlist a cadre of starving art teachers, vengeful
wives and resourceful Indian-Americans. They will break into the houses of film
lovers, throw mails bag over their heads, chain them to seats in a movie
theater, and allow them to watch “Sita Sings the Blues.” If they don’t love it,
let ‘em sue me.

[You can watch "Sita Sings the Blues" for free at www.sitasingstheblues.com

Open Compliance Program: Linux Foundation


http://www.linuxfoundation.org/programs/legal/compliance

As the use of Linux and other open source software has exploded in recent years, especially in mobile and consumer electronics products, the need has arisen for a trusted, neutral, non-commercial compliance program that offers a comprehensive offering of compliance training, tools and services. To address that complexity, The Linux Foundation has developed a set of open source tools, training curricula and a new self-administered assessment checklist that will allow companies to ensure compliance in a cost-effective and efficient manner. The Open Compliance Program also includes a new data exchange standard so companies and their suppliers can easily report software information in a standard way.

The six elements of the Linux Foundation’s Open Compliance Program are:

Tools

While there are many commercial and open source scanning tools available to identify the origin and license of source code, the Linux Foundation has developed complementary tools needed to help companies improve their open source compliance due diligence. The Linux Foundation has released initial versions of these tools as open source projects and urges other developers to contribute to them. They include:

  • Dependency Checker: capable of identifying code combinations at the dynamic and static link level. In addition, the tool offer a license policy framework that enables FOSS Compliance Officers to define combinations of licenses and linkage methods that are to be flagged if found as a result of running the tool.
  • Bill of Material (BoM) Difference Checker: capable of reporting differences between BoMs and therefore enabling companies to identify changed source code components and to better report included open source components in updated product releases.
  • The Code Janitor: This tool provides linguistic review capabilities to make sure developers did not leave comments in the source code about future products, product code names, mention of competitors, etc. The tool maintains a database of keywords that are scanned for in the source code files to ensure code released is safe and ready for public consumption.

Rare Sharing of Data Leads to Progress on Alzheimer’s

This is a very, very big deal. This is exactly what we have been preaching for a long time, and to see it articulated this way is very gratifying.


Excerpt:
"The key to the Alzheimer’s project was an agreement as ambitious as its goal: not just to raise money, not just to do research on a vast scale, but also to share all the data, making every single finding public immediately, available to anyone with a computer anywhere in the world.

No one would own the data. No one could submit patent applications, though private companies would ultimately profit from any drugs or imaging tests developed as a result of the effort.

“It was unbelievable,” said Dr. John Q. Trojanowski, an Alzheimer’s researcher at the University of Pennsylvania. “It’s not science the way most of us have practiced it in our careers. But we all realized that we would never get biomarkers unless all of us parked our egos and intellectual-property noses outside the door and agreed that all of our data would be public immediately.”

The Corporation has Gone Open-Source


http://www.itworld.com/business/116563/the-corporation-has-gone-open-source

<quote>

Accenture "found that half of the respondents (50 percent) are fully committed to open source in their business while almost a third (28 percent) say they are experimenting with open source and keeping an open mind to using it. Furthermore, two-thirds of all respondents (65 percent) noted that they have a fully documented strategic approach for using open source in their business, while another third (32 percent) are developing a strategic plan. Of the organizations using open source, almost nine out of ten (88 percent) will increase their investment in the software in 2010 compared to 2009."

....

There are, though, other things that are still slowing down businesses' open-source conversion. Peter Vescuso, executive VP of marketing and business development for Black Duck Software, a company specializing in managing open source legal issues for businesses, commented on the Accenture study saying that a "Lack of senior management support and awareness is the main barrier. .... Once senior management becomes aware and accepts the fact that OSS plays a crucial role in the development process, the next logical step is to develop policies for usage, licensing, monitoring, reporting and contributing back to the community."

I think Vescuso is right. While management has learned about the value of open source, they still need more education about how open-source development and communities work. As they do so, and they are going to, FOSS will be picked up even more quickly in big business IT departments.
