In total, 20 projects were nominated. These ranged from community lead endeavours such as DokuWiki and Inkscape, through Open Source favourites like Piwik and Gitlab to big businesses, for example OpenBravo and Liferay.
Every project nominated has now been sent a goodie bag, with a phpList birthday card, balloons and a candle. The projects where I managed to trackdown and talk to the newsletter manager also received and a phpList tshirt.
The aim of the game
We want to “give back” to the wider Open Source community in whatever way we can; offering free phpList hosting and support is one way of doing that.
We would also like to see more Open Source projects and companies using an Open Source newsletter solution. The simplicity of phpList.com removes many obstacles, so it’s just a case of inspiring people to make the change… and what could be more inspiring than a DIY Open Source party kit?
Cheer them on!
The parcels should start arriving to destinations in Europe from today, but those going to Australia and America, will take a few weeks. In the mean time, why not cheer on some of your favourite projects, by tweeting from the links below:
- Piwik.pro and Piwik
- Cyclos / Social Trade Org
We’ll keep you posted on the outcome!
