Thanks to Joe Montibello for mentioning FOSS4Lib.org<http://FOSS4Lib.org> earlier in this thread.  I was the PI on the grant that created and augmented FOSS4Lib under funding from the Mellon Foundation over the past couple of years.  I was not aware of the EuropeanaTech FLOSS inventory, and there does seem to be some overlap in approaches.

FOSS4Lib is open to editing by anyone.  Just create an account using the link on the right sidebar.  (There is a slight delay when I approve accounts to be created.)  Over the past year we've added a few features to this site working with Galecia Group.  One is moving the Open Source ILS feature comparison tool to FOSS4Lib (http://ils.foss4lib.org/).  Galecia Group is currently making this tool more general so we can set up comparisons of any type of software.  More on that in the next few months.  Secondly, we've added linkages to data at OpenHub.net<http://OpenHub.net> (formerly OHLOH) for a projects code metrics.

One of the distinctions I'd like to add to FOSS4Lib is that of "Application" versus "Toolkit".  "Islandora" is an application, and it uses "Open Seadragon" as a component (among many others), but right now they are reflected in the FOSS4Lib package registry as peers.  It would be useful to limit searches and browses to just one or the other.

Every other month I give a one hour overview of the content on FOSS4Lib and how cultural heritage organizations can use it to make decisions about if and which open source software is right for them.  The next one is March 31st -- more details at http://foss4lib.org/content/free-webinars-introducing-foss4lib

The FOSS4Lib site is based in Drupal with custom content types and code developed under the grant by the Cherry Hill Company.  It has always been our intention to open source the code so others can build on the work, but other work has always gotten in the way.  If there is interest, I'll open up the code on GitHub.

Greg,

Thanks for the invitation to give input to the inventory. Can you compare and contrast the EuropeanaTech FLOSS inventory with https://foss4lib.org/? (And/or perhaps someone from Lyrasis might also chime in?) Just wondering if they are two different approaches with the same objective, or two somewhat different approaches with some overlapping names / software titles.

For the record, I'm not necessarily suggesting trying to consolidate, but rather understand any differences and overlaps between them. It seems like there is plenty of room for more than a single tools registry. I.e., there are at least three overlapping, current digital preservation tool lists:

- COPTR, the Community Owned digital Preservation Tool Registry: http://coptr.digipres.org/Main_Page
- POWRR's "tool grid" for digital preservation software: http://digitalpowrr.niu.edu/tool-grid/
- the IIPC's Web Archiving Tools & Software tools list: http://netpreserve.org/web-archiving/tools-and-software

each of which seems to have its niche (and more importantly, maintainers!)

Thanks,

- Tom

Hello all,

Last week there were a few posts about finding a list of open source
projects. I would like to point everyone towards the EuropeanaTech FLOSS
Inventory
<https://docs.google.com/a/beeldengeluid.nl/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ag_7rVJwt0CpdFRJOEJxdEk4ZEMxQ01jaDgxQXFSTkE#gid=0>.


The list features almost 300 OS tools that are relevant for the digital
cultural heritage/digital humanities sector.

Currently I am the only one actively managing the list. As you could
imagine, staying up-to-date with new releases and new additions is quite
difficult.

So feel free to browse around the inventory, if you see some of your own
work on there and it needs updating feel free to tell me! If some of your
favorite tools aren't on the list feel free to send me links to their
github and I will add them.

Thanks everyone and I look forward to your contributions.

Regards,

greg
