New Apache Allura Project For Project Development Hosting 43

New submitter brondsem writes: "Today the Apache Software Foundation announced the Allura project for hosting software development projects.

It's already used by SourceForge, DARPA, German Aerospace Center, and Open Source Projects Europe. Allura is open source; available under the Apache License v2.0.

    When Sourceforge and similar sites first came online they were offering a service that was hard to duplicate locally for most open source development teams.

    Today the equivalent would be offering virtual machine instances running complex application frameworks, probably deployed with a set of puppet modules maintained by the development team and also offered for download. That's the "missing infrastructure" in 2014.ï
