Microsoft rebuilds open source Sandcastle
Microsoft is apparently serious about its efforts to adhere to the letter of the Open Source Definition and is now set to relaunch its Sandcastle effort as a result. Nearly a month ago Microsoft pulled the Sandcastle project from its CodePlex site because it was listed as being open source (under the OSI approved Ms-PL) when in fact it wasn't because it didn't adhere to the licensing terms of open source. Sandcastle which is a documentation compiler for managed class libraries did not have source code open and available for download.
