Although Jakob literally said “the podling is leaving the nest”, I think what we are actually leaving is the burrow to set sights higher. After 11 months under incubation, finally last week Apache Marmotta has become top-level project of the Apache Software Foundation. Thanks all who have contributed to it!
I think Sebastian has already written a great summary of the story behind Marmotta so far. But this does not end here, not all! Now the project has to demonstrate the potential of Linked Data technologies going to the next level. So I invite all potential developers/researcher/users that are reading these lines to join us in the further development of Marmotta.
