Adobe Announces Open-Source Collaboration with Sourceforge

Today, Adobe announced an expansion of its open-source activities and a collaboration with Sourceforge, called “Open@Adobe.”

“Open@Adobe is a site aggregating Adobe’s openness programs, which includes source code hosting, such as the Adobe® Flex framework, and contributions from Adobe to standards organizations, as well as specifications.”

Dave McAllister, Director of Open Source and Standards (OSS) at Adobe Systems said the company’s “current repository was not meeting the desire to allow our projects to evolve in multiple directions simultaneously.” So the decision was made to collaborate with Sourceforge, which recently rolled out an open source forge development platform.
