CollabNet announced two deployments of their SourceCast software today, one creating a web site that will provide a central point of coordination for projectsbuilt around the Mozilla project, and another with Motorola to build a base of applications for their Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME) communications and computing handsets.

CollabNet's SourceCast is a platform designed to encourage open source development by providing the tools needed to coordinate projects, such as mailing list management, revision control, issue tracking, and surveys. The handsets upon which the applications will run are expected to be available in the first half of this year through several iDEN network operators.

The Mozilla-related project,, also built on SourceCast, is being provided by CollabNet to bring numerous projects built around Mozilla to a central location. The site currently lists over twenty projects including a role-playing game engine, a theme builder, an advanced bookmark management tool, and the popular Aphrodite theme/interface project.
