The news doesn’t end there, the fun part begins. The transfer of control over the open source IronRuby and IronPython projects into the hands of the community has been announced. All projects and parts thereof have been released under the Apache 2.0 license. The community can now supply code to any part of the projects. Project leaders and coordinators have agreed to become Miguel de Icaza. , Michael Foord , Jeff Hardy and Jimmy Schementi
This move by Microsoft to put full control in the hands of the community is nothing short of gratifying. Now we can say unequivocally that projects will not die from lack of funding or Microsoft’s interest in them. Any developer can contribute to the development of the projects.
The official announcement of all these changes is here Jimmy Schementi wrote his post on his blog about the news. Expect an announcement from Miguel De Icaza with plans for projects. I’m sure IronRuby and IronPython will be great extensions to the Mono platform.
