What’s the best way to Open Source a project

by John Wilker in EffectiveUI

I’m still working on cleaning up the Survey app to release to the Open Source Community. I’m putting in a few more features I think it should have as a minimum set, but I’m curious. What’s the best way to release?

SQL scripts? Dummy data?

I’m leaning towards just SQL scripts. The Dummy data I would provide would be Conference days, Time slots, things like that.

This being my first time putting something out into Open Source, I’m curious what the best approach is.

Any help would rock, I’m hoping that I’ll be able to upload it to RIAforge next week sometime. Fingers crossed!

    I’d look at some of Ray Camden’s apps. I think he does a great job of providing several db options and great docs for installing, etc.

    @Jim,

    Good idea, yeah Ray does a kick ass job. I hadn’t even thought about docs. grr. that’ll be fun, LOL.
