Behind the scenes on SourceForge's acquisition of Ohloh | The Open Road - CNET News

There are 2 comments on the news.cnet.com story from May 30, 2009, titled Behind the scenes on SourceForge's acquisition of Ohloh | The Open Road - CNET News. In it, news.cnet.com reports that:

SourceForge on Thursday announced its acquisition of Ohloh, operator of Ohloh.net, an open-source data and community service. While the acquisition makes sense--Ars Technica dubs the move "the latest in a string of very smart moves that are rapidly turning SourceForge into the collaboration powerhouse that it originally aspired to become"--I wanted to know more about the "how" of the deal...SourceForge, apparently tired of being taken for granted and watching open-source projects move to Google Code and other repositories, has been active lately on a range of fronts. The Ohloh acquisition is just one more example of a company making some bold moves to reinvent itself.
