With the start of SAP TechEd 2010 in Berlin the SAP CodeExchange platform will be launched. It’s great to see that SAP is moving on in adopting Open Source. According to Simon Phipps SAP now enters phase 2:
“Be completely open but in terms of a license. Busy on knit picking every line of a license and trying to work out perfect licenses.”
What I hope is that Code Exchange will be sucessfull even with the ToU. And that in a next step SAP will allow also OSI approved licences to be used for Code Exchange platform. Then SAP will enter phase 3 of their Open Source adoption.
I try to support Code Exchange as good as I can and uploaded already 3 projects:
also I’m contributing to the abap2xlsx Project.
