Projects of the Week, June 18, 2018

Lun, 06/18/2018 - 06:26

Here are the featured projects for the week, which appear on the front page of SourceForge.net:

GeckoLinux

GeckoLinux is a Linux distribution based on openSUSE. I’ve used Linux on the desktop since approximately 2001. I have used many versions of openSUSE since the project’s inception, and I used SuSE Linux before that. I’ve always appreciated openSUSE’s flexibility and highly innovative infrastructure, but the profusion of “paper cuts” in the default configuration always made me think twice before recommending it to others. This projects sets out to change that.

Today in Tech – 1993

Mié, 06/13/2018 - 06:14

On this day in 1993 three of the largest companies in the U.S.– media company Time Warner Inc., cable operator Tele-Communications Inc., and software publisher Microsoft Corp. announced that they would embark on a joint venture that would combine and redefine the worlds of computing, communications and television. The union was to form a company called Cablesoft, and would develop interactive television software that would allow consumers to shop and use the World Wide Web via their home television sets.

Training Your Team on Open Source Compliance

Vie, 06/08/2018 - 06:20

What makes an organization truly open source? There are many opinions regarding this matter, but one telling factor would be a conscious and continuous effort to maintain open source compliance. That means constantly educating your team as well as those outside the organization on your compliance policies and encouraging a culture of compliance.

Open source compliance is much more than just about keeping things open, it’s understanding the policies that govern the use of open source software, the facts of open source licensing and the legal risks of incorporating open source software. To achieve this in an organizational level, training is essential.

Compliance Training

Compliance training can be done either formally or informally, so long as the goal is achieved. But what is the goal of compliance training? According to The Linux Foundation’s guide to open source compliance, it is “to raise awareness of open source policies and strategies and to build a common understanding around the issues and facts of open source licensing.” It is also vital in ensuring that the company or organization avoid business and legal risks that come with incorporating open source software.

In formal settings, compliance training is mandatory to all those working with open source software. These trainings would be led by formal instructors and most likely culminate in exams.

Informal trainings on the other hand, can be done in a number of ways:

  • Brown bag seminars – These are seminars or casual meetings held during lunchtime by an employee or member of the organization well-versed in compliance policies, or by an invited speaker. These types of seminars not only aim to educate members but also encourage discussions about the group’s compliance program, policies and processes.
  • New employee orientation – Compliance training can also be part of new employee orientation, wherein a Compliance Officer presents the company’s compliance policies and processes to new employees. This ensures that right from the start, employees are already well aware of what they should and shouldn’t be doing, who to talk to, etc. regarding open source.
  • Online portal – Though not a form of training in itself, an online portal or website can be a great compliance training tool. It can be used in two ways: inwards, to host compliance policies, guidelines, documents, training, etc. within the company or organization; and outwards, as a public platform for the world. It can serve as a venue to post source code of open source packages and other disclosures, fulfilling license obligations.

With the openness of some organizations and projects being contentious, it’s important to continue to rally for genuine openness, and that includes promoting and practicing open source compliance. Through open source compliance training the policies that form the backbone of open source will continue to prevail and keep the entire open source movement strong.

Today in Tech – 1995

Mié, 06/06/2018 - 06:04

On this day in 1995 the Los Angeles Times published a report on the Vatican’s efforts to put its library on the World Wide Web for the very first time. The undertaking was headed by then director of the Apostolic Vatican Library, Father Leonard Boyle and was part of a project funded by IBM. It involved the computerization of the library’s catalog and placing digital copies of ancient manuscripts and paintings on the official website. Today the Vatican Library website contains thousands of digital copies of manuscripts and incunabula for scholars and the public to peruse, as well as images and descriptions of the Vatican’s extensive, ancient numismatic collection.

Congratulations GitHub!

Mar, 06/05/2018 - 01:42

You’ve probably already heard the news, but if you haven’t, Microsoft agreed to acquire GitHub today. The team at SourceForge would like to extend a big congratulations to everyone at GitHub. The value that GitHub has contributed to the open source community over the past decade is immeasurable.

We have always believed that the FOSS community is best served when there’s a greater number of options for viable, trustworthy online destinations for sharing and collaborating on open source software development. We wish Microsoft and GitHub well in future years, and this huge acquisition is evidence of how globally important open source software has become.

With that said, we’d like to highlight the value we believe SourceForge brings to the open source landscape. Today, SourceForge serves over 100 million software downloads per month, is visited by over a million users per day, and is home to 3.7 million registered developers.

To give a little history, SourceForge was founded in 1999, and in the nearly two decades following has been serving the open source community as one of the world’s largest open source software repositories. SourceForge was most recently acquired in 2016 and the new SourceForge team has been working extremely hard to improve the SourceForge experience for both developers and end-users. The very first thing we did after acquiring SourceForge two years ago was remove bundled installers from projects, a move universally applauded in the developer community. Since then, further improvements have included:

What’s Next?

This year, we’ll be announcing new features including vast improvements to our suite of developer tools.

One of SourceForge’s main strengths has always been our ability to empower open source software developers to reach a huge amount of potential end-users through our powerful software distribution capabilities. We’re the first large-scale open source software repository on the Internet, and in the last two decades have seen history made with our tools several times. Paradigm-shifting technologies like Bitcoin were first developed on SourceForge.

Why SourceForge?

We have the most robust search and discovery system of any open source repository on the web, and offer an unparalleled experience for end-users looking for software binaries they can download and install with the click of a button. We’re talking about a destination for end-users to find and download and install the software they need, similar to an App Store but for FOSS. GitHub and SourceForge are both great for developers, but for the layman, non-technical, end-user, SourceForge is much easier to find and install a project.

On the developer side, we provide detailed download statistics and versatile mailing lists to project admins. We also offer developers the optional ability to display user reviews on their project page. In addition, we’ve recently improved the detail and granularity of the statistics we provide project admins with significantly. Our powerful software search and discovery tools are now much easier to use, with all project categorization types now available as filters on the left side of the Directory pages. 2018 will see us further improve on these capabilities.

Regarding GitHub

Another feature we’ve built is a GitHub Importer tool that will import your GitHub project to SourceForge and sync your GitHub project file releases on SourceForge. You can use it as a one-time import, or it can continue to use GitHub but use our importer to keep your releases updated on SourceForge as well, so you can take advantage of the strengths of both platforms. Again, we believe the open source community is always better served when there are multiple options for open source projects to live.

Again, congrats GitHub!

June 2018, “Staff Pick” Project of the Month – Akaunting

Lun, 06/04/2018 - 06:26

For our June “Staff Pick” Project of the Month, we selected Akaunting, a free and online accounting software. Recently we caught up with co-founder and CEO Denis Duliçi, who shared some thoughts about the project’s history, purpose, and direction.

SourceForge (SF): Tell me about the Akaunting project please.
Denis Duliçi (DD): Akaunting is a free, open source and online accounting platform for small businesses and freelancers. In short, it’s the WordPress of Accounting.

SF: What made you start this?
DD: Our own needs. We needed an accounting software and as an Open Source addict, the first thing I did was to search in FOSS communities and directories. It was the year 2017, so we needed an online software and after an intensive research, we were not able to find one. Then we felt that we should make it.

SF: Has the original vision been achieved?
DD: Yes, thanks to Akaunting, from invoicing to expense tracking to accounting, you can manage your money online. We want to make Akaunting the WordPress for Accounting, and we’re seeking for developers that share such a vision to be part of, and contribute to the community in this vision.

SF: Who can benefit the most from your project?
DD: Any small business and freelancer who wants to stay on top of their cash flow, get invoices paid, and track their expenses. Hopefully, in the future, with the help of our community, Akaunting will address the needs of enterprises too.

SF: What core need does Akaunting fulfill?
DD: Akaunting fulfills the need of keeping the financial data online and private. Current online/cloud accounting softwares are not private, desktop accounting softwares are not online. Our motto against cloud-based accounting software is: Don’t give your financials to another company.

SF: What’s the best way to get the most out of using Akaunting?
DD: The first thing to do would be to check our documentation as Akaunting comes with pretty new concepts https://akaunting.com/docs We do also have a forum where users can get help.

SF: What has your project team done to help build and nurture your community?
DD: We’ve built an amazing App Store for Akaunting users and developers where users can fulfill their needs and developers can create an income channel. That’s why we prefer to call Akaunting as an accounting platform, not software.

SF: Have you found that more frequent releases helps build up your community of users?
DD: Yes, definitely. Our development strategy adopts a regular release schedule every 5-6 months with the features primarily driven by ideas added by our community.

SF: What was the first big thing that happened for your project?
DD: The first big thing for Akaunting was the GitHub stars, we got 150+ stars in just 1 week. That told us that people were excited about our disruption and it was clear that they’ve been searching for a long time for such a software.

SF: What helped make that happen?
DD: Akaunting is built using Laravel PHP framework so the Laravel community helped a lot making that happen as they were excited to see an end-user software built on Laravel.

SF: How has SourceForge and its tools helped your project reach that success?
DD: We’re pretty new and there are veterans here at SourceForge that don’t give us so much space to play but we’re growing fast and being selected by the SourceForge team will definitely create a dowel action.

SF: What is the next big thing for Akaunting?
DD: Akaunting is getting a very good penetration to the user level. We currently need to increase the number of developers and so on apps/modules. This is also a call to all SourceForge developers, come and create modules for Akaunting as there is a huge blue ocean at the moment.

SF: How long do you think that will take?
DD: I suppose it will take a couple of months but I’m pretty sure that this SourgeForge selection will speed up the process.

SF: Do you have the resources you need to make that happen?
DD: Yes, for sure. Our team is ready to help developers to make and publish their apps/modules. Yet, we still need to grow the community so we need the help of developers as well.

SF: If you had to do it over again, what would you do differently for Akaunting?
DD: We would definitely avoid some mistakes we made but the metrics we’ve achieved in such a short time show that we’re in pretty good shape.

SF: Is there anything else we should know?
DD: Akaunting is hosted on GitHub and open for everyone to contribute. We’re disrupting the closed-source dominated market and introducing the power of Open Source to accounting world so please, feel free to help us make this happen.

June 2018, “Community Choice” Project of the Month – Cosmic-OS

Vie, 06/01/2018 - 06:05

For our June 2018 “Community Choice” Project of the Month, the community elected Cosmic-OS, an AOSP-CAF based custom ROM with full Substratum support. Founder and Lead Developer Sagar Shah shared some thoughts about the project’s history, purpose, and direction.

SourceForge (SF): Tell me about the Cosmic-OS project please.
Sagar Shah (SS): Cosmic-OS is a custom aftermarket firmware distribution for Android Devices.

SF: What made you start this?
SS: I started this project due to my curiosity of learning new things. Development became my hobby and helped me to learn many new things.

SF: Has the original vision been achieved?
SS: No, the original vision is still [yet to be achieved]. We have a good userbase now, but we still need to bring new things for our users to make Cosmic-OS fully unique and innovative.

SF: Who can benefit the most from your project?
SS: All our users who use old, buggy software in their Android Device can use Cosmic-OS and can experience the change in their phone. People can taste stable Android Oreo with lots of customisations as well as stability.

SF: What core need does Cosmic-OS fulfill?
SS: The need for an up-to-date software and lag-free OS for smartphones. 50% of Android users use old versions of Android with lags. We try to change that scenario.

SF: What’s the best way to get the most out of using Cosmic-OS?
SS: One can install our OS and if he faces any difficulties, he can join our Google+ Community or Telegram Community Group for a friendly discussion with us. This way, he/she can achieve the most out of Cosmic-OS.

SF: What has your project team done to help build and nurture your community?
SS: We have tried our best to maintain more and more devices as possible. Once the OS was available for more devices, we automatically improved and expanded our community. We also have a telegram Channel where we post updates about changes and updates for new devices in a very basic yet effective manner. People can get notified with all the updates in Cosmic-OS via just one channel.

SF: Have you found that more frequent releases helps build up your community of users?
SS: Yes, Weekly updates attract more users and help us build a better userbase.

SF: What was the first big thing that happened for your project?
SS: Cosmic-OS was selected as Sourceforge Project of the Week thrice, which was a big thing for us. Recently, XDA officially reviewed Cosmic-OS in their YouTube channel which is the best thing that happened for our project.

SF: What helped make that happen?
SS: All the credit for it goes to our awesome community and users. Without them, we couldn’t have come this far.

SF: How has SourceForge and its tools helped your project reach that success?
SS: Sourceforge has provided us with free file hosting which helped us with our resources problem. Sourceforge gave our project a major boost, and allowed us to give multiple updates in an organized manner.

SF: What is the next big thing for Cosmic-OS?
SS: We will try to work as hard as possible and will add more unique features to it. This way, we will make our community even bigger and worth exploring.

SF: How long do you think that will take?
SS: It may take weeks, months, or even a year. But we won’t stop. We will keep working for this project and will surely achieve our dream in the future.

SF: Do you have the resources you need to make that happen?
SS: We have Sourceforge which helps with our Hosting issues. Build servers can be an issue in the future, but I am sure we will be able to tackle it. To maintain a big project, one has to invest some of their resources and time.

SF: If you had to do it over again, what would you do differently for Cosmic-OS?
SS: If I had to do it over again, I would not do the same mistakes I did earlier when I was learning. In its initial phase, Cosmic-OS wasn’t as good as it is right now. [It’s become this good] thanks to the experience I got while working on this project for 1.5-2 years.

SF: Is there anything else we should know?
SS: There are lots of YouTube videos about Cosmic-OS for different devices which shows Cosmic-OS in action. People should watch them to get an idea about our project. Our main aim is to create a community where people can have a friendly discussion and can #ExploreTheCosmos with us! (Yes, #ExploreTheCosmos is our tagline)

Today in Tech – 1996

Mié, 05/30/2018 - 06:17

On this day in 1996 telecommunications company AT&T held a meeting to announce a system that would allow people to make and receive video phone calls through computers. For years prior the company along with several others had developed videophones, also known as picturephones, but never achieved the broad adoption they were hoping for due to the high price of videophone units and services. Their new system used Intel’s Pentium processors and compression software to allow both video and audio information to share a phone line instead of using a high-capacity ISDN, T-1 or T-3 line.

Berryboot Updated OS Images

This is the biggest list of OS images for Berryboot. All these images have been tested before public availability. The original OS images were downloaded from their respective official websites, I did not modified any data of the original nor converted OS images. I convert most of the OS images by using this method: http://www.berryterminal.com/doku.php/berryboot/adding_custom_distributions. RetroPie and others already have OS images for Berryboot, I just compress it and serve as a mirror. Fedora OS images were converted by using this tool: https://github.com/sjenning/rpi2-fedora-image-builder. I’m not part of the Berryboot project, I’m just a web developer with a Raspberry Pi 2. I cannot offer full support on these images. However, if you find any issue, please contact me and I’ll look into it. You can request OS images at: http://berryboot.alexgoldcheidt.com/request-os-images/ You can download Odroid C2 OS images from here: http://berryboot.alexgoldcheidt.com/odroid-c2/

Today in Tech – 1995

Mié, 05/23/2018 - 06:15

On this day in 1995 Sun Microsystems Inc. officially announced the programming language Java and its accompanying Web browser HotJava to an audience at the SunWorld ‘95 convention. Java is a general-purpose computer programming language that was intended to let application developers “write once, run anywhere,” which meant that compiled Java code could run on any supported platform with no need for recompilation.

Java was originally developed by Canadian computer scientist James Gosling at Sun Microsystems, and was officially released in 1995. As of 2016, it is considered one of the most popular programming languages in use, with a reported 9 million developers using it worldwide.
