Thanks for hearing.
‘actively hold space’ seems hard to pin down. I do think the phrase “open source” itself contains a similar ambiguity. The very hard edged definition is that the source code is open and licensed permissively, then there’s whether the project team ‘practices open source’, which sounds more like the ‘actively holds space’.
I would still say that the 4 apps (to exclude the 5th “passthrough DNA”) that have put themselves up for compatibility, and listing, within Holoscape, are good examples of 4 “open source projects built on Holochain”. Even Holo has maintenance over two of those, but they’re still very much interesting projects, open source, built on Holochain, which I’m sure Holo would gladly receive help and collaboration on.
That is: Communities, Basic Chat, __holo.txt by @kristofer, and Acorn.
I’ve even made pull requests on the open source hp-admin HPOS/HoloFuel front end app myself.
From other personal experience, I’d like to think that with the limited resources we have (it’s usually the case with open source) we’ve done a good job of responding to issues, including interested persons, and we even have accepted a few pull requests from people who just spun up the code and started making changes, on the Acorn project.
