Open ShareLive is a subproject of ShareLive; more information on ShareLive itself is available on that website.
We decided to publically release and develop the code that powers the main part of the site, in order to harness community programming resources and to ensure that the ShareLive code stays alive, even if the worst happens to the rest of ShareLive.
Currently, the code is not very usable, but that should change over Summer 2005.
This site is by chris52389/ctenet.
In addition to the vast amount of code that OSL requires to run (most notably an operating system, a web server, MySQL, and PHP), it is believed by me that OpenShareLive contains code from an unknown LGPLed source. It is perfectly legal to use this, but I would like to give credit. If anyone can point me in the right direction, let me know.
Here is a list of developers from the pre-OSL days.
- Si - wrote this incarnation of sharelive from scratch (I think there were other incarnations in ShareLive's history, but OSL is the same one that SL.com has been using for as long as I've been around.)
- DS - many improvements seem to be attributable to him, however his other big project (SL2.0, which wasn't the 2nd sharelive) seems to be lost.
Then there is Intimidated and Stealthspy, but both of them are still on the OSL team.
It is likely that there are people missing from this page or misatributed work. Feel free to correct me.
At least with CVS it is simple to tell who did what.
