Non-profit organizations have played a key role in the evolution of the open source ecosystem over the past 30 years. While each of the organizations has been created to address a particular need or constituency, they all provide a strong base to enable the next wave of growth and investment in successful, maturing open source projects in the wild. Over the past decade, corporations have begun to engage more in collaborations and look to non-profit organizations to act as the point of cooperation to encourage growth and investment in new projects. With that difference in mind, the presentation looks at what evolution is needed to support the differences, and challenges to be managed (with examples) to continue to grow a strong open source ecosystem.
