Google is preparing to announce a new offering specifically designed for the Open Source Community. All of the tongues are still at Google except for this posting by Greg Stein, an engineering manager in Google’s Open Source Group.
I can’t say I am exactly in the ‘know’ on this topic but I would take a cheap bet that Google is going to launch it’s own version of SourceForge.net (touted as “The world’s largest development and download repository of Open Source code and applications”).
Hmm, I wonder if the Open Source community would be interested in this? Would you post your open source project on a Google property?
Do you have feedback? Please leave a comment!
If such a creation were embraced by the OS community it would certainly solidify and diversify Google’s advertising market.
