I guess the textbook is old news now, but I just wanted to say how grateful I am that we got so much help in getting in done — and I think we’ll be getting a lot more, soon. Often, the key is just to get the ball rolling. When people feel like your project isn’t a dalliance, but an actual inevitability, then everyone gets waaaaay more interested.
We never had a textbook for “how to get involved in open source” — and now we do. One less impediment for those hardy souls who want to teach it in a formalized setting.
I also put an article up on opensource.com today — check it out. Tell your friends.
(Maybe someone should tell Slashdot. Do people still do that?)
