Open-Source Directory sponsorship and partnership

Author: JT Smith

Steve Mallett writes "Two announcements from Open-Source Directory:

Open-Source Directory (OSD) is very pleased to have MandrakeSoft as a sponsor. MandrakeSoft is the maker of the user-friendly Mandrake-Linux, linux-distribution. "We're very pleased to have such a fine linux company back us this way," states Steve Mallett co-founder of OSD. "They do incredible and highly prized work in bringing linux to people who otherwise may not take the plunge. We strive to do the same for open-source." Mandrake is providing OSD with a server at the MandrakeSoft facilities.

OSD is also pleased to announce a partnership is Ibiblio. OSD and Ibiblio have partnered to offer FTP and archiving service to the stable, open-source software collected at OSD. Steve Mallett says: "This is more significant than most may initially think. We've strived to make our database of product information seperate from the OSD site by exporting it into XML for anyone to use. In light of the recent appwatch announcement it is more pertinant than ever that this info, and now code, remain in the public's access. This partnership with Ibiblio makes this all the more possible." Upload to ibibio should commence by mid October/2001.
