Made an app and don't need the code anymore? Go open source with webos-commons

This is for you developers out there. Made a webOS app a while back and don't really feel the need to keep some of the code to yourself? Rather than throw it up on your own personal site or GitHub account, we're going to suggest that you add it to the open source public GitHub repository that is webos-commons.

webos-commons aims to serve as a centralized dumping ground for code developers don't need anymore, allowing other developers to pick up that code and use it to solve their own app issues. It's kind of like that penny dish by the cash register - leave some change if you don't need it, and if you do need it there might be something there to help you out.

WebOS Internals chief Rod Whitby is driving the organization of webos-commons and stands ready to clear new members for the repository. Got something to add? Hit up Rod at the source link below.
