Antelink joins FOSSBazaar

I'm very pleased to annouce that Antelink, the INRIA'spinoff I lead and cofound with Stépane Bagnier, joins FOSSBazaar community.

Antelink is a software vendor. Our market position leaves little room for developing service/consulting activities. As a result, we didn’t opt for an open source model. However, as users of open source libraries and solutions, we felt it was important to give something back to open source communities. Part of this will involve developing products and services that can be used for free by open source communities.

TOP 5 most reused components from Apache Commons

Should you go back to SVN ?

During last Collaboration summit of the Linux Foundation in San Francisco,  Bradley M. Kuhn and Karen M. Sandler made a very interesting talk about “Lessons learned from ath5k” at Software freedom law center. They explained how they had to solve a copyright and licensing issue between linux and openBSD development teams.
