This evening at OSCON 2008, Mark Shuttleworth had keynoted and talked about driving innovation within free software, the Web, and Linux on mobile devices were among the topics during his 30 minute talk.

In addition, Mark had talked briefly about revision control systems / bug reporting. Of course, he mentioned Canonical's Launchpad. Launchpad is most notably used with Ubuntu but it makes it possible to collaborate between free software projects, track new features/blueprints, and many other leading-edge features.

To this point though, Launchpad isn't available under a free software license aside from its Storm component. However, Mark Shuttleworth has stated this afternoon that within the next 12 months they expect to release the source-code to Launchpad. Beyond that, not many details were shed. Should we find out any other OSCON-generated details about Canonical's plans for opening up Launchpad, we'll post them, otherwise look for the source-code in probably 2009.
