Some thoughts on collaborating Free and Open Source projects by Gregor J. Rothfuss and Paul Everitt:
“Last year we wrote a piece here questioning whether open source projects were motivated to work with each other. This article was in the context of our work with OSCOM and its attempts to bring together open source content management projects and developers.
The article stimulated some interesting questions. Now that we’ve had some time to take some steps and try some ideas, we thought it appropriate to report back.”

This wonderful paper by Frank Buschmann and Kevlin Henney provides some useful information about software design patterns for distributed computing. A worthwhile read for relaxation at the weekend 😉 The document has been written for the EuroPLoP 2002 conference. There are some more very interesting texts available at http://www.hillside.net/patterns/EuroPLoP2002/.
