"Collab.Net, a leading provider of collaborative services for emerging open source software markets, today announced the completion of the first project, a test suite framework for the Apache Web server, on Collab.Net' sourceXchange, the premier, collaborative marketplace for financing and managing open source software development over the Internet. Collab.Net has also completed a major revision to the sourceXchange Web site to provide a new design, improved user interface, and new functionality."

"Hewlett-Packard Company sponsored the development of the test suite framework for the Apache Web server. The project was built on top of an existing open source testing tool and completed within six weeks. Encouraged by the success of this initial project, HP has posted several additional RFPs (Request for Proposals) on the sourceXchange site that focus on building components based on its e-speak open software platform."

"HP chose to partner with Collab.Net because of the company's expertise in the open source community and because we wanted to make a contribution to the open source development model," said Carl D'Costa, marketing manager at HP's E-speak Operation. "The sourceXchange process allows us to receive high?quality proposals from open source developers and get our deliverables in a timely, cost-effective manner. We were very pleased with the sourceXchange process and look forward to using the site for additional e-speak projects in the future."
