One of the key lessons open source companies have learned over the last few years is that it's the quality of your development community which determines your success.
This is a mistake, both on the part of the companies involved and on the part of the industry. If mobile Linux is to really take off, then a development community must be activated.
The new forge has many of the tools you look for in a good community site. The question is whether it will attract mobile developers generally, or just those who care about Funambol's own software.
I know that corporate-owned forges are usually devoted to a corporation's own software, but it may be time for that to change.
If other mobile projects won't develop high-quality forges with good community tools, why shouldn't Funambol Forge become the center of the action?
