SourceForge back-end code to be donated to Apache

Open source vendor GeekNet is turning a new page in the SourceForge story today with a proposal to the Apache Software Foundation to accept the Allura software platform within the ASF as a new Incubator project.

The move may be a way to keep the code for Allura open if GeekNet ultimately opts to sell the SourceForge web site.

Allura is the name for the actual forge software that runs behind the scenes for all of SourceForge’s forge product, handing code hosting, discussion forums, wikis, and ticket management, just to name a few features.
