As most of you know, we have been doing a Project of the Month on SourceForge since October of 2002. When we feature a project, it’s a little like the Colbert Bump, projects get some visibility, and often, good things happen for these projects.
Starting this month, we are making a change in the program. We have recently returned to a Project of the Month voting process where you in the community have the power to select a project from a set of nominees we draw based on project growth, releases, and other data. This project is the “Community Choice.”
We are adding an additional project that is selected by our team, we’re calling the “Staff Pick.” Simply put, a member of our team generally comes across a project they have used, one they love, or one that solves an interesting problem. We consider such nominations from our team and pick one to highlight.
Both projects will get featured on the SourceForge front page. As well, we’ll do a blog post about them both, and continue to track them in our running PoTM historical list. As usual, we’ll also mention these in our monthly newsletter.
Many thanks to you all for your contribute to OSS; the Project of the Month has become what is is because of your contributions to making software that is important to you and that others love.
