Taking open source foundations to the next level

Filed under
OSS

Given that now even some small open source projects are forming their own foundations, Glynn Moody thinks that perhaps open source foundations have come of age. He suggests that the time may now be right for the formation of an umbrella foundation to help share best practices, legal advice and other information and support.

Krita is a fine sketching and painting program, but few would claim that it is one of the big names in the open source world, such as Firefox or LibreOffice. That makes the following recent announcement noteworthy:

The Krita community is proud to announce the creation of the Krita Foundation!

It's still surprising that a relatively small project like Krita is taking this route. What this signals, I think, is that open source foundations have now come of age, and are no longer exotic constructs adopted by a few outliers.
