SourceForge launches OSS service market|
SourceForge, the open source development and distribution web site, has launched a free online marketplace for buying and selling service and support for open source software (OSS).
Integrated into the main Sourceforge site, the Marketplace already has more than 600 service listings.
Some major projects offering service and support include: OpenBravo, JasperSoft, Zenoss, Compiere, Firebird, Nagios and Spring Framework.
Those wishing to offer services can do so for free. Service providers are able to set their own pricing, support levels, and service types.
The site also features a reputation system that allows buyers and sellers to rate each other after each sale.
"The demand for support around open source software continues to grow," said Mike Rudolph, vice president and general manager of SourceForge.net.
"Our goal, as it has been from the start, is to help drive the adoption of open source software and enable success throughout the open source community," he concluded.
