FOSS vs. open source as an American debate

,----[ Quote ]
| Soon after I took on this beat for ZDNet, I 
| got a nasty gram from Richard Stallman 
| (right).
| I wish heâd put it in the form of a paper 
| letter. I probably should have framed it.
| In his note, as I recall it, Stallman made 
| clear the difference between Free and Open 
| Source Software (FOSS) and open source as 
| conceived by Eric Raymond and supporters in 
| the business community.
| FOSS is not just âfree as in free beer,â he 
| told me. Under FOSS software is free, not 
| just for the user. The software itself has 
| liberties.

Six-monthly releases: OpenBSD shows the way

,----[ Quote ]
| De Raadt says that by the time one release
| takes place, the developers are already six
| weeks into the next development cycle. "The
| release is a branch off the main development
| tree. In many other projects, it is a live
| branch, as in a separate team cuts it off
| and then keeps making minor tweaks to it to
| make sure it is a good release (why? that is
| because the mainline is crap).
| "In OpenBSD, the release branch is a dead
| branch. The day it split from the trunk it
| was determined to be good enough for making
| a real release. Without any changes. That is
| because the trunk is good stuff."
