re: Open Source Has Not Failed. Don't Cover Up Corporate Abuse of Open Source VIEW POST


One of the main reasons we open source is to help fix bugs by crowdsourcing our development. No matter how big the organization is it cannot have enough resources to tackle all issues with closed/ private repos and deliver value in time.

For many popular projects its a win-win situation as contributors see their name in there and organizations improve their solutions almost for free.

Everything else is politics.
