Hudson, Bazaar, Drizzle and OpenGrok - And OSS Software Adoption Inside a Corporation


What is the connection between OpenGrok, Drizzle and Bazaar? Hudson, the Continuous Integration system. Check out Jorgen's writeup describing his Presentation on using Hudson with OpenGrok, and Trond's note on Bazaar Plugin, used with Drizzle Builds.

Another connection is that Trond and Jorgen work in Sun's DataBase group in Trondheim, and you might think that is how they discovered Hudson, except that in a large, distributed, company, Open Source products often get adopted without any direct internal communication. Actually, in an internal recent presentation on Drizzle Brian was telling me about this great CI tool called Hudson! :-)

MySQL opens to Bazaar

Bazaar RCS

Today MySQL announced that it has switched from its previous RCS to Bazaar with its web associated Launchpad.

The move intends to facilitate contributions by the community.

There is much excitement at Canonical, the company that supports Bazaar. And if you want to see a really happy man, check Elliot Murphy's blog.

A popular question is "Why not mercurial?", to which Kaj answers that the switch to Bazaar was planned long before the Sun acquisition.

So now the Bazaar community rejoices and the MySQL geeks are already hard at work.
