:-) All one can do is look .......
Some approaches might be:
1)Understand the branches of the various main linux distributions:
I.E. Slackware, Red Hat, Mandriva, Suse, and Debian.
a)Slackware - as far as I know - has _one_ developer - Volkerding (sp?)
b)Debian derivations seem to be the fastest growing. I believe that at
some repositories are shared.
RT's decision not to be open source is making it harder - see the explosion
of usage of PHP as an alternative _but_ something to consider, is there
a hybrid licensing scheme that might work for RT's distribution?
I know that cost is a consideration, but another source might be to seek
some adhoc consultation from somebody like a network/cross-platform
tech from a company like AttachMate.
