Proprietary software and FOSS
I want to hear what people think about supporting opensource initiatives around proprietary commercial solutions. I'm thinking for example of pyRevit, Dynamo for Revit and IFC for Revit. I think can should include them in our community.
I also think it's important that we clearly state our values (I'm working on that) without in any way closing doors to all and any collaboration with proprietary solutions. I know this is controversial in some circles but I believe that it is a simple question of making progress where ever we can.
I can imagine proprietary software pointing to open source solutions in areas they don't want to enter but in order to fill out their product stack without pointing to competitors.
Imagine for example if many opensource addins to proprietary software began linking up and making a shared effort. Maybe even pointing toward a shared resource and community (now who could that be?)
