Remember that I didn't force you to take the software. The act of taking the software was done under free agency, so getting mad about the free gift of some open source code that you chose to take seems to be more your own problem than mine; you are totally capable of using that free agency again and stop using the source code.
So, after a time working a lot here and on my business, I was with my healthy compromised and needed to choose between "keep my open source project" or "keep my mental and physical health". And for me the choice was very clear, I choose me.
I maintain many open source projects on GitHub and elsewhere (over 160 as of this writing). I have merged and/or closed thousands of Pull Requests (PRs) and patches in the past few years, and would like to summarize here many of the reasons I don't merge many PRs.
When I look at open source projects, I divide the people involved into three categories: the investors, the contributors, and the users. The contributors do the work on the project, while the investors (if any) support the contributors in some way. The users are those who simply use the project without contributing to it.
Here’s the thing: I write open source software to solve my problem. I let you use my solutions because that comes at zero cost for me (well, almost, I still have to pay for the website, you are downloading from. You are welcome, by the way).
Mobilizon is a tool designed to create platforms for managing communities and events. Its purpose is to help as many people as possible to free themselves from Facebook groups and events, from Meetup, etc. The Mobilizon software is under a Free licence, so anyone can host a Mobilizon server, called an instance. These instances may federate with each other, so any person with an account on ExampleMeet will be able to register to an event created on SpecimenEvent.
I have some great news that I’ve been meaning to share for a while: the Caddy project is now owned by apilayer. This allows me to continue working on Caddy full-time, without any changes to the current open source licensing. This was a very personal decision for me, which came only after lots of careful consideration and discussion with both apilayer and Ardan Labs. We’re excited for this, and I hope you will be too. In this post I’ll elaborate on my perspective and explain some of the details...
Let me just cut straight to it: I'm going to open source the Have I Been Pwned code base. The decision has been a while coming and it took a failed M&A process to get here, but the code will be turned over to the public for the
Google brought us Kubernetes. But now we see a different side to the organization that made such a smart move when it turned over Kubernetes in 2015 and led the formation of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).
