Sun accused of hardball open source project tactic

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 6 years ago

Sun Microsystems 2

An anonymous reader writes "The OpenDS project now appears close to extinction now that the people running the show, including the person who has contributed > 50% of the code have withdrawn from the project after Sun tried to force them to relinquish control.

In an open letter to the project and Sun, Neil Wilson gives the history behind their decision to retire from the project.

Sun have tried to put a different spin on the story and discredit Neil (Ludo, Eduardo-1, Eduardo-2) but were firmly rebutted by another (ex) member of the team Trey.

We will now have to wait and see if Jonathan Schwartz really means the hype he has been generating about Sun's commitment to Open Source — preferably by firing the execs responsible for this mess."
