open-source

Download.com is advertising GPL software downloads!

Very interesting!

It sounded so interesting, I even clicked on a link on my own website (which google ads actually forbids - but hey, here I continue the ad for free!):

Download.com is financing google ads, as well as a nicely and professional designed download page

Bureaucracy and code quality

The Xen developers have a quite bureaucratic approach about getting patches in - say, they simply refuse to even read a mail that doesn't have PATCH in the subject line, and they asbolutely refuse to consider making a change you only _describe_ to them - but that doesn't mean only high quality code gets in.

I had the funny experience, that a bugfix hint from me about a bug in the xendomains script, which only required one line to be changed, and me therefore not bothering about creating a patch with diff, simply didn't make it in.
