| Server edition 10.4. In a related announcement 
| MuleSoft and Canonical announced a partnership

| Among open source related projects funded 
| under the sixth Framework Program, at least 
| four of them - namely FLOSSMetrics, QualiPSo, 
| QUALOSS and SQO-OSS - have been found 
| overlapping around open source software 
| development and quality.
| SQO-OSS - Source Quality Observatory for Open 
| Source Software - similarly to FLOSSMetrics 
| was aimed at massive collection of data from 
| thousands of projects, though with different 
| goals.



VC Funding for FLOSS Dips in 2009: Rebound in 2010?

| But the good news is that open source vendors
| pulled ahead of the pack. Aslett writes that
| "OSS-related vendors fared better in terms of
| investment compared to software as a whole."
| This takes into account 67 deals, with a dip
| of 25% year over year from 2008. The total
| investment bill came in at about $375 million.
