GIT

Subversion ( svn )

People at grid.com are talking about open sources- Phases of open source projects ( and SGE as example of top level open source ). This post influenced by Alex Fletcher’s The five phases of maturity for open source software ecosystems. Main idea it’s to divide lifecycle to five separate stages :
* Phase 1: Purely open source stage ( Example : open source implementations of Jingle )
* Phase 2: Entrance into the marketplace ( Example – Untangle )
* Phase 3: Momentum takeoff drives growth ( Example(s) – Alfresco, Funambol, Zimbra )
* Phase 4: Predictability ( Example(s) – Red Hat Linux, MySQL )
* Phase 5: Emergence as full-fledged platform ( Example – Sun Grid Engine )

I’m highly recommending¬† Alex Fletcher’s blog for anyone who deal with open source project managment – there’s a lot of very interesting analytics.
