SFOSC :: Sustainable Free and Open Source Communities
Welcome! This is a place dedicated to the discussion, creation, and evolution of Sustainable Free and Open Source Communities. We are organized around the development of a set of shared principles that we believe lead to healthy, sustainable open source communities.

Our conception of community is an expansive one - it covers developers, users, evangelists, venture capitalists - anyone who believes that software is better when it is built in a community, and that communities are formed because of a shared understanding between people.

In addition to the principles, we intend to publish a set of ready to use social contracts. These social contracts can be adopted by free and open source software projects, and go in to detail the expectations of the community around: leadership, contribution, codes of conduct, monetary investment, and more. We’re still working on those. :)

If you’re considering starting an open source project, and you intend to start a business around it, you might be interested in our explanation of the various open source business models. This includes why some create more sustainable communities than others.

Finally, you might want to read the book on the thought process and research that went in to the creation of SFOSC. It provides a detailed background of the initial motivations behind the community, and the framework by which the principles were created.

Selling Exceptions to the GNU GPL - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation
tl;dr it's generally okay to sell an exception to embed free software in non-free other software, because of business strategy. Apparently this is not the same as dual licensing, though I'm not sure why.

Software Freedom Conservancy
Software Freedom Conservancy is a not-for-profit charity that helps promote, improve, develop, and defend Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS) projects. Conservancy provides a non-profit home and infrastructure for FLOSS projects. This allows FLOSS developers to focus on what they do best — writing and improving FLOSS for the general public — while Conservancy takes care of the projects' needs that do not relate directly to software development and documentation.

grafana/loki: Like Prometheus, but for logs.
Loki is a horizontally-scalable, highly-available, multi-tenant log aggregation system inspired by Prometheus. It is designed to be very cost effective and easy to operate, as it does not index the contents of the logs, but rather a set of labels for each log stream.

Compared to other log aggregation systems, Loki:

does not do full text indexing on logs. By storing compressed, unstructured logs and only indexing metadata, Loki is simpler to operate and cheaper to run.
indexes and groups log streams using the same labels you’re already using with Prometheus, enabling you to seamlessly switch between metrics and logs using the same labels that you’re already using with Prometheus.
is an especially good fit for storing Kubernetes Pod logs; metadata such as Pod labels is automatically scraped and indexed.
has native support in Grafana (already in the nightly builds, will be included in Grafana 6.0).

Loki consists of 3 components:

loki is the main server, responsible for storing logs and processing queries.
promtail is the agent, responsible for gathering logs and sending them to loki.
Grafana for the UI.

Introduction | Yggdrasil
Yggdrasil is an early-stage implementation of a fully end-to-end encrypted IPv6 network. It is lightweight, self-arranging, supported on multiple platforms and allows pretty much any IPv6-capable application to communicate securely with other Yggdrasil nodes. Yggdrasil does not require you to have IPv6 Internet connectivity - it also works over IPv4.

Although Yggdrasil shares many similarities with cjdns, it employs a different routing algorithm based on a globally-agreed spanning tree and greedy routing in a metric space, and aims to implement some novel local backpressure routing techniques. In theory, Yggdrasil should scale well on networks with internet-like topologies.

Matrix.org
An open network for secure, decentralized communication.

Matrix is an open standard for interoperable, decentralised, real-time communication over IP. It can be used to power Instant Messaging, VoIP/WebRTC signalling, Internet of Things communication - or anywhere you need a standard HTTP API for publishing and subscribing to data whilst tracking the conversation history.

Matrix’s initial goal is to fix the problem of fragmented IP communications: letting users message and call each other without having to care what app the other user is on - making it as easy as sending an email.

Instant realtime GraphQL on Postgres | Hasura GraphQL Engine
GraphQL project goals explicitly do not endorse this concept for the core project (basically OData for GraphQL) because it gives too much control to the client (could too easily send a crazy query to the backend).

However, it could be pretty useful as well. Especially when prototyping.

Seems like GraphQL version of PostgREST.
