I guess this talk is so much in your department that we don't have much
to say, other than "cool" ;-)
I don't think there has been any "big" news in the Kallithea world. The
community is growing and many of us are using it in production so we
like to keep it stable and scratch our biggest itches.
The biggest "thing" might be what happened elsewhere, with gitorious.
perhaps inspire or ignite a discussion.
We saw a number of (presumably) gitorious refugees asking us to change
the license to AGPL. None of them seemed to be interested in
contributing, so I really don't see why they should care which open
source license their software were released under, as long as they had
the freedom to choose anything from running their own instance to buying
access to an instance hosted by someone else. Also, I find it
"interesting" that I and other contributors probably not would have been
able to use Kallithea in our $dayjob if it had been under AGPL but are
happy with the GPL license. The relevance of AGPL might however be
something we should discuss face to face more than a topic that is
suitable for this talk ;-)
