Compiere, the the smart business solution for small-medium distribution and service enterprises worldwide, completed the move to SourceForge and
changed the licensing policy.
SorceForge is the world's largest Open Source development site hosting 28,000 projects and Compiere quickly became one of the most active projects - now consistently ranked among the top 100 of all projects and top 10 Java projects.
With SourceForge, the development collaboration becomes easier using the source code control system CVS as well as "tracker" for bugs,
enhancements and support requests. Mailing lists for announcements, development and use of the product are also available in addition to an "Open Discussion" forum.
These options allow users to evaluate the stage of development and stability of the product and to find help and advice as well as comments and tips from other users. In contrast to traditional offerings, the user has access to all information and participate and influence the future direction of the application. Everything is in the open for everyone to see.
The license was also changed to the Mozilla Public License (MPL) version 1.1 and the Netscape Public License, just changing the copyright notices from Netscape, Inc. to ComPiere, Inc., as the initial contributor of the application. The new license allows to package the Compiere Application in a "greater work" commercial offering. This change makes contributing to Compiere viable for resellers, system integrators and application service provider (ASP).
