DSmaps to go open source(-ish)

Monday, 22nd September, 2008

I’ve decided that I’m just way too busy with everything else in my life to do justice to DSmaps. The main difficulty, if I’m completely honest about it, is that because my day job involves writing a lot of code, the last thing I want to do in my spare time is write more code. I’ve also got a young family and a very time consuming sporting interest.

The obvious solution therefore is to let others take the reins. However, I’ve never been involved in the delivery end of an open source project before so I’m looking for suggestions on how best to do this. In the interests of QA I’d ideally like to maintain some sort of ‘editorial control’ over the project – even this is just to control the domain name and this blog. Please shout with your thoughts…
