Open Source (Almost) Everything
Should we open source Grit or keep it proprietary?

Keeping it private would provide a higher hurdle for competing Ruby-based Git hosting sites, giving us an advantage. Open sourcing it would mean thousands of people worldwide could use it to build interesting Git tools, creating an even more vibrant Git ecosystem.

After a small amount of debate we decided to open source Grit. I don't recall the specifics of the conversation but that decision nearly four years ago has led to what I think is one of our most important core values: open source (almost) everything.

Public Open Source Services / FrontPage
"You use the same Google Merchant account that App Engine debits as the one that accepts donations. This way no bank account is involved. Then you track the money that goes into the account (using the Google Merchant IPN equivalent). Then you look at your usage stats from the App Engine panel and predicate future usage trends. Then calculate the cost per month. Then divide the cash in the account by that and you have how long the service will run. You make this visible on all pages (at the bottom, say) that this service will run for X months, "Pay now to keep it running." You accept any amount, but you are completely clear about what the costs are. And this is all automated."

Quetzalcoatal: A public service announcement
"If your code will be seen by the world at large, one of your first tasks should be to write documentation. Document all functions as soon as you write them (before is also helpful). Provide samples on how to use code as soon as you finish a module (or earlier, if possible). Do not wait until your 5.0 release. Do not wait until your 1.0 release. Do not even wait until your 0.5 release. Do it as you write your code. The sooner, the better."

"Although the events are sad in one way, it is refreshing to finally see take a definitive stand against the community, making explicit what has been implicit in their behaviour. The project can now be taken out of limbo. Most (if not all) of the active contributors have jumped ship and gotten on the fork bandwagon. There’s a great number of features lined up that people didn’t commit during the governance crisis, for fear of being taken advantage over by They have proven again and again that marketing the hard work of community volunteers as their own is not below them."

Wow, "X" - what an unsearchably-named framework. "X is a collection of loosely-bound, cross-browser, Javascript functions and objects. It is intended to be a resource from which you pick and choose - you do not have to include the entire library in your application. It contains core DOM/Style functions, unobtrusive enhancements, utility functions, objects such as menus and tab panels, and also has some experimental stuff. I've been developing this library since 2001 (I started its predecessor around 1999). Thanks to thousands of people like yourself X has been extensively tested on a wide range of operating systems and browsers. Thanks to your contributions X continues to improve, grow and evolve."
