Community News:
Open Source Golden Rules
April 20, 2007 @ 09:26:00

There's two new posts out there that anyone involved with Open Source projects would do well to check out - one from Tobias Schlitt and the other from Greg Beaver.

Coming first, Tobias' post talks about what he considers the "Ten Golden Rules" for starting out in the Open Source community. Included in the list are things like:

...and more. Check out the full post for more.

In a response/continuance of this theme, Greg - his own list of rules developers should take to heart when working in and around Open Source applications. Some selections from his list:

  • If you must criticize, criticize with a gentle and humble tone
  • Despite the evidence, it's probably your fault
  • Assume everything you ever say will become permanent and don't say things that will come back to haunt you
That last one's my personal favorite - be sure to check out both lists for some great thoughts from both of these developers.
