  • Karl Fogel touches on this subject nicely in Open Source Development with CVS [red-bean.com].* Of course, no one ever read the book because what people mistake as the "meat" is given away for free. But the books insights into open source are much more compelling then intro to CVS.

    And Rule 1 is: Release running code.

    Running code is the seed from which a successful open source project will start. So to continue the metaphor of stone soup, if you show up with some broth, some bay leaves, and maybe a wilted carrot or two, you're okay, but stones won't get you there.

    Also if you can provide people a kitchen, and a really big pot, that helps to.

    * 1st ed., I've heard mixed things about the 2nd edition.

    ps. why is slash sticking [red-bean.com] after my url?
