#drupalappstore, the catalyst for a lot of interesting conversation

You are viewing a wiki page. You are welcome to join the group and then edit it. Be bold!

The subject of a Drupal App Store started making it's way around Twitter this week. There's been a lot of interesting discussion stemming from this. The passionate discussions taking place are all around an area that doesn't usually get a lot of attention, figuring out ways to make contributing to open source sustainable.

As a first post to this group, let's start a Wiki to document all of the individual blog posts that have sprung up around this topic. Please feel free to edit this document and add others. These posts and the comments within them have a lot of great conversation, and a lot of good ideas. I'd like to see us consolidate this information here on G.D.O/D.O so it can be available to others trying to solve this problem for themselves!

SOA, SaaS?

I'd like to add few more examples of app store implementation in the web context:

First example is classic and what most peoples understand by #drupalappstore, but according experience it's not always meet expectations, second example is what I personally like and what makes more sense for quality improvements and long term support.

Thanks.
