Free and Open Source Software is about sharing. Â¬â The idea is that by working together everyone benefits. Â¬â This conceptÂ¬â does not stop with code. Â¬â For businesses there is also value in sharing best practice information to raise the bar on the market as a whole. Â¬â
At Opendawn we understand this. Â¬â We've been working in this field for a while, and we have seen open collaboration drive forward solutions to complex issues time and time again. Â¬â Sharing has contributed to our bottom line through direct resources, establishing new relationships, and by providing us with fresh perspectives.Â¬â
Today Opendawn launches three new tools for project governance into public beta. Â¬â The first is a library of links covering everything from process development through to politics. The second is a tool to help people explore licensing options when starting their own project. The third is a tool to help people locate experts around the world. Â¬â
These tools are part of our contribution back to the community, and are part of the same program that lead us to become anÂ¬â Associate Partner of FOSSbazaar. Â¬â Let us know what you think and stay tuned. Â¬â There is more to come.
