OLinux.com.br: Sourceforge.net: Wait a minute, Sir! What about that forgotten Open Source project?

[ Thanks to Fernando

Olinux: How was SourceForge created? What was
the main ideas in the begining? Who the initial group got together?
Are any physical HeadQuarters?”

Quentin: SourceForge was initially
conceived as a project called “ColdStorage”. CS was targeted at
making permanent archive of every CVS tree for every Open Source
project on the planet.
That idea got slightly modified by the
original founding members of the SourceForge project, along with
input from VA Linux Systems’ staff. The result is what you have

“The initial group was Tony Guntharp, Drew Streib, Tim Perdue
and Uriah Welcome – who are all based out of SourceForge’s official
HQ – VA Linux Systems in Sunnyvale, California.”
