Bravo to ActiveState for opening up some of their platform, and eating their own:
The OpenKomodo project was just announced. They’ll be building their own tools off this same platform. Could lead to some seriously nice open tools.
OpenKomodo’s licensing will apparently be three-fold. The mozilla public license, GPL, and LGPL. This should definitely give plenty of freedom in extending the system to great FOSS applications. Imagine having a firefox built out where firebug-like tools became the norm of your environment. Very nifty indeed.
