OpenNTF developers can now use GitHub
as their source control management service for OpenNTF projects.
From the GitHub page: "Git is an
extremely fast, efficient, distributed version control system ideal for
the collaborative development of software. GitHub is the best way to collaborate
On GitHub 2,159,346 people are hosting
over 3,759,381 repositories, some of which are jQuery, reddit, Sparkle,
curl, Ruby on Rails, node.js, ClickToFlash, Erlang/OTP, CakePHP, and Redis.
GitHub is free
for open source projects. You can have unlimited public repositories and
unlimited public collaborators.
OpenNTF has created an OpenNTF space
on GitHub which will contain all OpenNTF projects that want to use GitHub.
As for "cleared" releases
in the OpenNTF Catalogs all contributors with write permission must be
covered by an OpenNTF ICLA
or CCLA. Releases are as always
subject to IP scanning by the OpenNTF IP Manager.
OpenNTF asks that developers using the
OpenNTF GitHubspace to also deliver their releases as usual on OpenNTF.
So essentially, everything stays as is on the OpenNTF side of things but,
developers can now use the additional source control system. Over time
we'd like to work on integration the GitHub functionality into the OpenNTF.org
Strickland documented the other
day on his blog how to set up Domino Designer to use Git leveraging the
OpenNTF project EGit
for Domino Designer.
If you want to set up a project in the
OpenNTF GitHub space please contact our IP manager (firstname.lastname@example.org).
