We’ve always intended that ScraperWiki itself should be open source – philosophically it doesn’t make sense for a collaborative code wiki for working with public datasets not to be.
More practically, letting anyone see our developer tools means you can also access our bug tracker, so you know what we’re working on and what issues and features we’re thinking about.
We’re proud to announce that ScraperWiki is now open source under the Affero GPL.
So have at it – clone the Mercurial checkout into Gitorious, get the core Django application running and let us know which bugs and features matter, or don’t matter, to you.
