Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and Java
Since January, the future of <a href="https://socialsite.dev.java.net">Project SocialSite</a> has been in the hands of the ~SocialSite community. During that time, I continued working on the project almost because I think it's got great potential and I would really like to see it live on in some form. That's also why I continued to talk to Sun about the project.
Today, I'm very happy to announce that Sun Microsystems is willing to contribute Project ~SocialSite to the Apache Software Foundation. It's not clear whether ~SocialSite should be contributed into Shindig or as a new incubator project, but either way I think this is the best thing for the project and will give it the best possible chances for building a thriving community. I've started some discussions about this on Apache-private mailing lists and I'll let you know what happens next.
This post brings to an end my series of posts about Shindig for blogs and wikis. Here are links to the earlier posts:
