TL;DR: We have a product we’d like to contribute to the foundation, how can we do this?
I’m an academic working with the company behind Manta MTA on a few really cool projects. One of the sidelines to these projects is to finally open-source Manta – a production-level MTA. This was developed in-house and has been used for several years. We have a lot of experience with open-source and we’re really keen on contributing this to the dotnetfoundation so that we can see it grow. We really want to avoid the whole “throwing code over a wall” scenario.
I’ve tried to contact the dotnetfoundation via email. Understandably you have been busy, particularly given the recent announcements from Microsoft about open-sourcing their runtime. However, I’d like to reenforce the sentiment of the question asking about the process for accepting projects into the foundation. We have a real and pressing wish to get into this process. Any assistance in this matter would be of great help to us.
