Roberto Galoppini just published a brief interview with Mark de Visser this morning which covers Sonatype’s open documentation efforts. As someone who has been involved with Sonatype’s open book efforts along with Jason, Brian, John, Jason, Bruce, and our other contributing authors it is interesting to see the traffic and interest that is generated by something as simple as free documentation. I’ve long been a big believer that books about open source software should be as free as the software itself, and I’m also convinced that solid documentation is a necessary foundation for a vibrant open-source community. Without a good “free” book, it is nearly impossible for an open source project to grow a community.
