Links collection about software forges: status, criticism and new ideas

with 4 comments

During the last two years it is quite common to hear about new software forges, but I’m not going to talk about forges proliferation in this post, what I would to like to discuss it what the next step in collaborative development environments is. Thus in order to get the big picture I spent some hours looking for scientific and “informal” publications, now I think I have a good starting point and it would be great if you can offer feedback or even improve it.

The list of links contains papers, blog entries, presentations and reports. Some of them point out very interesting problems like the “data jail”, others re-think the concept of software forges like the paper named “The networked forge” and finally, some of the developers of the main software forges present what they do and what they want to do during next years.


Blog entries:



I’ll submit this information to the planetforge wiki, as soon as it is posted there I will include here the link.
