Open Source is more than just code dumps

Great quote from Matt Asay's analysis of what went wrong with the opening of Symbian:

Open source isn’t a one-time announcement, coupled with a code drop. It’s exceptionally hard, ongoing work that requires equal parts evangelism, programming, and customer success stories to keep developers believing that their work matters.

This is very much in line with what I wrote about Open Projects earlier. I'll be giving a talk on the subject in COSS's OpenMind conference on Nov 10th.
