Neary: Open Source community building: a guide to getting it right
[Development] Posted Jan 9, 2011 16:21 UTC (Sun) by corbet
Dave Neary has put together a
guide for companies wanting to build or join open-source communities.
"Companies are used to controlling the products they work
on. Attempting to transfer this control to a project when you want to grow
a developer community will result in a lukewarm response from people who
don't want to be second class citizens. Similarly, engaging with a
community project where you will have no control over decisions is
challenging. Exchange control for influence."
