SocialSite and Apache

I'm finally catching up with Dave's post from last Friday. Quoting from his note on SocialSite and Apache:

ALT DESCR

... Sun Microsystems is willing to contribute Project SocialSite to the Apache Software Foundation. It's not clear whether SocialSite should be contributed into Shindig or as a new incubator project...

I've started some discussions about this on Apache-private mailing lists and I'll let you know what happens next.

As Dave says, this is "the best thing for the project and will give it the best possible chances for building a thriving community". My very best wishes to SocialSite.

Dave's presentation at ApacheCon was on Shindig for Blogs and Wikis; a number of his most recent posts have covered specific topics building to this presentation where he leveraged Shiding and SocialSite (and JSPWiki and Roller). Of special interest may be his posts on OAuth.

Good to see the project will go to a good home :)
