EtherPad source code is free, now what?

,----[ Quote ]
| EtherPad is a collaborative in-browser 
| text editor. AppJet launched the product 
| in the fall of 2008 with both commercial 
| and free (limited to eight concurrent 
| editors) versions, and it quickly gained 
| popularity in the first half of 2009. When 
| Google unveiled its own real-time 
| collaboration system Wave in June, 
| comparisons were inevitable. Many users 
| found EtherPad's interface simpler to use 
| and easier to understand, however, so it 
| was no great surprise when Google 
| announced that it had purchased AppJet and 
| EtherPad on December 4. The AppJet 
| engineers would work on Wave, ostensibly 
| making it as easy to use as EtherPad 
| itself.


[Launchpad] The Road Ahead

,----[ Quote ]
| Itâs my pleasure to introduce to you the 
| single greatest Launchpad planning 
| achievement for 2010: the roadmap.
| For the last few months weâve been working 
| on bridging the gap between the Ubuntu 
| distribution and the upstreams that itâs 
| made from: making it easier for patches, 
| translations, and bug reports to flow 
| between Ubuntu users, Ubuntu developers, 
| and upstream developers.
| Weâve been asking users what they want and 
| trying really hard to listen to them. And, 
| of course, since weâre Free Software now, 
| all of our discussion, development and 
| planning is out in the open.



EtherPad is Back Online Until Open Sourced

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
