"Net Boolean Incorporated announced today that it has pledged $1000 towards OpenLDAP development through the Cosource.com cooperative market. By co-funding OpenLDAP development through Cosource.com and their continued sponsorship of the OpenLDAP Project, Net Boolean sets the example for cooperative sponsorship of open source projects."

"Net Boolean CTO Kurt Zeilenga notes, "Every user wants to see the software they use improved. However, not every user has the necessary skills to do it themselves nor enough money to independently fund development. Cosource.com offers an alternative. Individuals can create a cooperative market for their software request and pool their resources to fund significant development. This allows anyone to make contributions to an open source efforts such as OpenLDAP."

"Quoting the Cosource.com website, "Our job is to create the venue that lets buyers of specialized software conduct business with skilled developers." Net Boolean hopes that their funding of select OpenLDAP efforts will encourage others to contribute funding and will allow the project to attract additional skilled developers."
