Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"A revolution is sweeping the world of Tcl/Tk, and we want
you to be part of it! A few weeks ago, John Ousterhout announced
his plans to involve the community in core development. Tcl/Tk has
always been available as Open Source, but it will now be developed
as a true Open Source project!"
"I've been involved with Tcl/Tk for many years, and when I first
read his proposal, I thought "What's the catch?" Cynical, maybe,
but John has a reputation for his tight control over the Tcl/Tk
internals. After talking with John, I've decided that there is no
catch. John is anxious for Ajuba to be involved in this new
process, and he has offered people and other resources. But he
realizes that Tcl/Tk is now so widely used and so important that it
really belongs to all of us. So he has opened the process in a way
that lets everyone participate!"
"For starters, John has asked us, as a community, to appoint the
members of a new Tcl/Tk Core Development Team. This team will fix
bugs, add features, and act as evangelists within the community,
helping to bring more people into the development process."
