Launchpad is now open source! W00t!

I came out of the dark after so long just to say: Launchpad is now open source!

For those who don’t know Launchpad, you should check out the Launchpad tour, here. It’s full of awesomeness. :)

Until today it was known that Canonical would keep Soyuz and Codehosting closed source, but for everyone’s surprise, Launchpad was fully open sourced, wisely out in the wild under the AGPLv3 free license.

If you are interested in contributing or are curious, here’s a starter: https://dev.launchpad.net. It’s the development wiki, feel free to try it out and fix wildly, after all, it’s a wiki for God sake! :P More specifically, https://dev.launchpad.net/Getting on how to get Launchpad source, for the “show me the code” people. ;)

Wanting to have a chat with Launchpad developers? Come and join us in #launchpad-dev at Freenode, we’re all friendly. ;)

And also, exactly one year ago I started working at Canonical, and joined Launchpad team as a happy QA Engineer. Quoting my colleague jml:

<jml>Ursinha, time flies when you're having fun :)

Indeed my friend! Indeed. :)

What a spectacular way to celebrate one year working with this team full of awesomeness. :) Guys, you all rock, keep up the awesome work!
