Well, I must admit I’ve been one of those who’s tended to take the ‘when pigs fly’ approach to the much-vaunted final open sourcing of Launchpad. It seems that today’s the big day for the take-off of the Royal Porcine Flying Corps, as it appears that Launchpad has been fully open sourced. If there’s truly no gotchas to it, in the spirit of fair play, I have to say – congratulations and kudos to Canonical for this move, it’s very welcome, especially the bit about open sourcing the whole thing (they’d previously be planning to keep some components closed indefinitely). Good job!
