Over at LinuxPlanet, Sean Michael Kerner talks with Canonical CTO Matt Zimmerman
about the tools and processes used to work with the globally distributed Canonical team. "While Zimmerman noted that he does get together face-to-face fairly regularly with his staff once a quarter, facilitating regular interaction requires a long list of common tools. For instance, Zimmerman said that Canonical engineers do a lot of work through IRC , wikis and teleconferences. The team also uses the open source Gobby tool for collaborative editing and Mumble for voice chatrooms.
'Mumble is sort of like IRC for voice,' Zimmerman said. 'You have a set of channels and then people come and go from one channel to another and whatever channel you're in, there is live voice between the people that are in the room.'
