According to David Johnson, leader of the Roller project, IBM is stepping up to the plate, ready to help develop an open source enterprise class blogging system, with group blogging capability.

What is up next? Derby integration. This is all good. IBM and Sun are acting like grown ups, which will surely benefit both company’s customers. As i said recently IBM should not fork useful code for no good reason.

Open source is a mindset not just a set of licences. We’d all benefit if IBM and Sun started collaborating, and stopped sniping.

Credit where its due. Well done Sun’s David and IBM’s Elias Torres for making this happen.

A note to the DB2 folks- apparently it can be used as a Roller back end datastore. A new context for the database-you listening Jon?
