  • New SourceForge Owners Start Trust Repair
    SourceForge Media announced the termination notice with a promise of other policy changes coming soon. DevShare was an opt-in revenue-sharing program for developers that was started in 2013. The program attempted to give open source software developers a monetizing stream by bundling selected software titles with the free downloads. It garnered negative reactions because projects hosted on SourceForge could bundle adware with project installers.
  • SourceForge Attempts to Rebuild its Integrity
    There was a time when SourceForge was the defacto default standard open-source code repository. That time is not now - as Github and mis-steps at SourceForge have eroded both the mind and market share that SourceForge once had.
  • IBM Bequeaths the Express Framework to the Node.js Foundation
    The Node.js Foundation has taken the Express Node.js framework under its wing. Express will be a new incubation project for the Foundation. IBM, which purchased Express maintainer StrongLoop last September, is contributing the code.
  • Data analysis of GitHub contributions reveals unexpected gender bias
    With more than 12 million users, GitHub is one of the largest online communities for collaborating on development projects. Now a team of researchers has done an exhaustive analysis of millions of GitHub pull requests for open source projects, trying to discover whether the contributions of women were accepted less often than the contributions of men. What they discovered was that women's contributions were actually accepted more often than men's—but only if the women had gender-neutral profiles. Women whose GitHub profiles revealed their genders had a much harder time.

  • Rackspace to Manage Red Hat OpenStack Clouds On-Premise
    In the latest stage of its transformation into a managed services provider that just happens to own some cloud infrastructure, Rackspace announced today that it has been certified by Red Hat to manage Red Hat OpenStack deployments in data centers.
  • Rackspace launches Red Hat driven Private Cloud
    Hosting company Rackspace has launched Private Cloud which (as the name suggests) is a private cloud ‘as a service’ built on the foundation of OpenStack technology. The new offering is an addition to its portfolio of Rackspace OpenStack-as-a-Service offerings, as part of the hosting company’s strategy to simplify and popularise OpenStack private and hybrid clouds.
  • Rackspace Continues its Quest to Support Everyone Else’s Cloud
    Rackspace’s contention is that there are many customers that start down the OpenStack path before realizing that it’s a lot harder to set up and run than anticipated. Then Rackspace can swoop in to configure and run that cloud for them either in their own server rooms, in a third-party data center, or on Rackspace equipment.
