John’s blog postings on testing open source projects where recently picked up by Mary Jo. Not bad PR for the work our team has been doing and good lessons to read if your team is looking at taking components open.
Our team has learned many lessons about the open source world since we released our first power toy to an open source site. Since that first release, we have had bug reports, feature requests, and code contributions. My suggestions below are based on our team’s experience. I hope you find my thoughts useful.
