Sonatype and the Open Source Community

Sonatype is committed to supporting the development of quality open source software. Our project philosophy is based in part on the importance of offering developers open source products with basic functionality at no cost. We've also made it a priority that add-on products, such as m2eclipse and Nexus, work together seamlessly.

Recently we came across this post that highlights the importance of smaller shops having access to quality cohesive technology, especially if they don't have the budget for commercial licenses.

Our own little shop is too small to send [Sonatype] a check for a Nexus Pro license, so instead our shop ends up being an early adopter, helping out by using the technology early, when it isn't as suitable for widespread success. Hopefully that helps Sonatype, even if just a little bit.
