Innovative open source software

Open source software has also almost become the norm in new standards implementation. This trend is relatively recent, but if you look at standards such as the JCR or CMIS , both were immediately implemented as a freely available open source project. I think that this makes a lot of sense since a standard implementation is similar to infrastructure work, and this makes it easy for companies involved in the standard to share their work and improve the overall quality and availability of the new standard. For interoperability standards such as CMIS this is especially useful since it can really help with the hardest work of making sure that different implementations actually do work together and that issues are raised and fixed quickly and transparently (bypassing corporate politics). It is therefore also my hope that the new upcoming Web Experience Management Interoperability standard will also have an open source implementation
