Project lead for BuddyPress and bbPress John James Jacoby announced that BuddyPress and bbPress are Open Source Now and welcomes contributes to these projects.
we are excited to announce today that all of the custom code is now publicly available in the Meta Subversion repository. You’re now able to checkout, review, and patch the code that makes BuddyPress.org happily hum along.
This is exciting for a few obvious reasons (like security, and really putting our open source philosophies where our code is) but the one I’m most excited about is it takes enhancements to the site out of our hands, and potentially puts them into yours.
He also unveils that bbPress.org is actually a code that’s part of BuddyPress.org’s WordPress installation, hence bbPress also becomes an Open Source project now on.
