Publish Your Software at the Open Channel Foundation
As a software developer, you know that publishing your software in open source mode is a wonderful way to generate acceptance for your software and strengthen it through community participation. You also know that it takes a lot of effort to develop and maintain an open source web site, particularly if your release has met with wide acceptance and you have a large and growing community of users and contributors.
The Open Channel Foundation offers an alternative to publishing your software that greatly reduces your involvement with the mundane issues of site support, while keeping you firmly in position as the chief architect and visionary.
- Your software will be grouped with other related software into a "discipline." Disciplines focus attention on your software to those users most likely to need it.
Each discipline is moderated by a recognized expert in the field, and provides enhanced mechanisms for building community through peer review and discussion.
- The Open Channel Foundation provides a proactive, knowledgeable staff involved in maintaining your site in a first class manner. Standard site features include user logs, licensing, bug tracking and many other elements.
- The Open Channel Foundation consistently monitors hosted software for commercial potential. If you believe your software has commercial opportunities, which are confirmed through our market research, our Commercial Engine will position, package, and market your software, providing the support and service resources necessary for acceptance in the commercial world.
