s/Nagios/monitoring\ community/g politics
Reading a link on Hacker News simply titled “Nagios-plugins web site taken over by Nagios,” my man Michael Friedrich (who was employed by netways after working on icinga development and evangelism for at least a year) came out of the gates strong defending the open source community.
But yeah, as domain owner you can treat your community like shit, and still feel happy about it. It’s still a miracle why you didn’t fork the former Nagios Plugins project into your own enterprise product stack any sooner. Probably their work was just needed, and now you’re just throwing them away like rubbish.
Very interesting thread and topic. Even if open source is open source, contributing people don’t seem to like it when it turns into free as in beer and not free as in people. I’m sticking with monitoring-plugins.org.
