The aim of the Open Source Working Group is to foster discussion among developers, Internet Service Providers and the rest of the RIPE community about open source projects related to the RIPE community. The Open Source Working Group was formed at RIPE 66 after several successful BoFs at RIPE 66 and previous RIPE Meetings.
The working group believes open source projects benefit the community and we regularly discuss new features and help guide their development. The working group facilitates open communication and coordination between open source software developers and the RIPE community, and is a platform through which developers can present recent updates, discuss their plans and receive feedback on their work for the mutual benefit of those developing open source software and those using it.
Because we cannot include all open source projects, we must limit our involvement to those related to and of interest to the RIPE community. Examples of such projects include routing products like BIRD, Quagga, OpenBGPD and XORP, as well as DHCP and network management tools like RRDtool, ntop and Nagios. Please note that this is by no means a definitive or exhaustive list.
