OpenDarwin shutting down

Scott McNulty

OpenDarwin, a project that I would imagine most TUAW readers didn't know about, is shutting down. The original idea behind OpenDarwin was to create features and bug fixes for Darwin, the UNIX foundation of OS X, which Apple would roll into the code that they distribute.

Sadly, it would seem, that relationship didn't pan out as people thought it might over the last 4 years. The project admins of other projects hosted on the OpenDarwin servers have been contacted and I am sure people are clamoring to set up redirects and new hosting.

A chapter has closed in the Apple open source effort.
