Submission + - How to build a better developer community (outercurve.org)

dp619 writes: Ubuntu community manager Jono Bacon (of GitHub fame) and the OuterCurve Foundation have shared a blog postwith suggestions including how to choose an open source license, why governance processes should be simple, how to establish codes of conduct, why a community helps software evolve, and how to structure a project to provide an easy on ramp to participate. The overarching theme of the post is that the dynamic aspects of software development are lost if a project doesn’t fully embrace open source; communities don’t just automatically form around a license. A added benefit is that companies that consume open source can contribute back to the commons and gain from collaborative development.
