Just listened to this interesting interview about Open Source project management, virtualization, Ubuntu. A couple quotes:
If you want your open source project to succeed…you absolutely have to have modularity.
He was talking about modularity that encourages developer participation – and they went on to talking about Open Office and the problems with their dev structure that drive developers away.
What i’m personally very interested in is how we collaborate efficiently… How do we improve the flow of collaboration? So that’s something we spend a lot of time working on within Ubuntu.
