OpenNTFThe Mission of OpenNTF, Inc. is to support the open source projects hosted at openntf.org. OpenNTF provides the framework for the community to develop open source applications which may be freely distributed. OpenNTF is formed exclusively as a non-profit trade association, as set out in section 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”).
OpenNTF is devoted to:
- Enabling groups of individuals all over the world to collaborate on software applications and release them as open source.
- Providing a framework for the community so that open source applications may be freely distributed, using widely accepted licensing terms.
- Increasing the quality and quantity of templates, applications and samples that are shared by the community.
OpenNTF was launched in 2002 by people from the Lotus Notes/Domino community. Since then 65.000 users have registered on OpenNTF to download code. There are more than 400 open source projects and an additional 1000 snippets of code. In May 2009 the new OpenNTF Alliance was established. The Alliance is in the process of being replaced by the newly incorporated OpenNTF, which, by the end of September 2011, will take over the operation of the OpenNTF site.
