Using FreeBSD to Promote Open Source Development Methods
In this talk we present Aerosource, an initiative
to bring Open Source Software development methods
to internal software developers at The Aerospace
Within Aerosource, FreeBSD is used in several key
roles. First, we run most of our tools on top of
FreeBSD. Second, the ports collection (both official
ports and custom internal ones) eases our administrative
burden. Third, the FreeBSD project serves as an
example and role model for the results that can be
achieved by an Open Source Software projects. We
discuss the development infrastructure we have built
for Aerosource based largely on BSD licensed software
including FreeBSD, PostgreSQL, Apache, and Trac.
We will also discuss our custom management tools
including our system for managing our custom internal
ports. Finally, we will cover our development
successes and how we use projects like FreeBSD as
exemplars of OSS development.
