"OpenSales released its AllCommerce Web site product-retailing software as open source, meaning anyone may adopt and modify the program. Now OpenSales will pay open-source programmers to extend the software through CollabNet's SourceXchange program, a source familiar with the plan said."
"The announcement is expected tomorrow at the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in San Jose, Calif. The show has triggered a cascade of news about Linux and the open-source community of programmers who collectively develop software by freely sharing code."
"CollabNet also is setting up the infrastructure for a programming community being set up by Linux video game console maker Indrema. Indrema has signed a partnership with Red Hat to co-develop a version of Linux called DV Linux tailored for video game and home entertainment system hardware that uses a TV for a display. In addition, CollabNet has simplified its name from Collab.Net."
