Today Opendawn is proud to release three new tools to assist with project governance. The first is a library of links covering everything from process development through to politics. The second is a tool to help people explore licensing options when starting their own project. The third is a tool to help people locate experts around the world.

Discussing the release Shane Coughlan, Opendawn’s CEO, said:

Free and Open Source Software is about sharing.  The idea is that by working together everyone benefits.  This concept does not stop with code.  For businesses there is also value in sharing best practice information to raise the bar on the market as a whole.

At Opendawn we understand this.  We’ve been working in this field for a while, and we have seen open collaboration drive forward solutions to complex issues time and time again.  Sharing has contributed to our bottom line through direct resources, establishing new relationships, and by providing us with fresh perspectives.

These tools are part of Opendawn’s contribution back to the community and are part of the same program that lead us to become an Associate Partner of FOSSbazaar.  As Shane said, “There is more to come.”  Watch this space.
