FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - 2005-11-28
OpenPKG Registry finally launched!
http://www.openpkg.org/ -- Munich, DE -- 2005-11-28 --
As a consequence of the changed environmental conditions of OpenPKG
during the year 2005, the OpenPKG project needs to finally shift its
focus from the requirements of a single predominant sponsor towards
the needs of a highly distributed and diverse community.
To meet this target it is vital to the OpenPKG project to know its
community. Unfortunately, experience showed that optional community
feedback gains just little attention. As a result, the OpenPKG project
still has not sufficiently explored its community in both size and
scope. To throw in a gear and build a much stronger relationship with
its community the OpenPKG project is forced to now pull essential
information from its community through mandatory methods.
Everything available from the OpenPKG project is a free and open
offering and remains this way, of course. Additionally, since years it
was also possible to grab all of the OpenPKG offerings anonymously. In
order to receive information about the community this anonymous access
now is no longer provided for accessing the full range of OpenPKG
offerings. From now on only the latest OpenPKG-RELEASE (without
updates) is accessible anonymously.
A registration is now required to access all other download resources.
Access is granted upon a free of charge registration as an OpenPKG
fellow user, registration of at least one installed OpenPKG instance
and a configured relationship between these two entities.
Please note that everything available from the OpenPKG project remains
available free of charge and as open source software. Only anonymous
access to our offerings is now restricted in order to better assess
the OpenPKG installation base and start to understand the demands of
the OpenPKG community.
Please actively support the OpenPKG project with your registration!
