"Collab.Net, a leading provider of collaborative services for emerging open source software markets, today announced a new RFP (Request For Proposal) that will create a specification for development of an open source project management tool. This is the first project to be sponsored from the Developer Wish List on Collab.Net's sourceXchange marketplace."

"sourceXchange is the premier exchange for financing and managing open source software development over the Internet. Developers with ideas for open source projects can go to sourceXchange and post them under the Wishes Section. Periodically, Collab.Net will review the wish list and work with the sourceXchange community to determine interesting projects for Collab.Net to sponsor. Once the RFPs are created, the project is developed though the normal sourceXchange model."

"The new project, "Specification Writing for Web-Based Project Planning Software" is co-sponsored by Opendesk.com, the first, free open source Intranet for small business. The goal of the new specification writing project is to identify a functional set of requirements that can be used to develop project management software that addresses the unique needs of the open source community. This project is the first step in developing open source project management software."
