Although EntLib has long shared its source code (Patterns & Practices where one of the first to do so) they are now accepting community contributions and can be declared as true OSS
- Starting Thursday, Nov 21, 2013, we will be accepting community contributions to the codebase (both new features and bug fixes), subject to the contribution guidelines.
- Microsoft patterns & practices continues to staff the project to curate as well as engage in active development and sustained engineering together with the community.
- In the spirit of true open source, the p&p project team will use the same process for making updates to the application blocks as any community member. No secret repositories, hidden issue trackers, or internal-only processes.
- Our quality bars are not lowered in any way.
If you are not familiar with EntLib and you consider yourself a .NET programmer than you should really get to know it
