PSNC Digital Libraries Team prepared a dedicated distribution of a Linux system - DigitLab, that allows to digitalize printed materials, for example a book.

Digitlab is an especially adapted operational system based on Linux Ubuntu. The main aim of its creation was to create a complete system which can be used for collections digitization with the usage of free and widely available tools. The system was based on Ubuntu in version 12.04 LTS and prepared with a tool called Remastersys. It can be downloaded as an ISO image and tried by recording it on pendrive or DVD without the necessity of installation on the computer.

Maturity of open source project

The Open Maturity Model (OMM), developed in QualiPSo project, is a CMMI-like process model for FLOSS development. This process model aims to help in building trust in development processes of companies using or producing FLOSS products.

Open Hardware License

There is a next step in the open world. In September, European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, has released version 1.1 of the Open Hardware Licence (OHL), a legal framework to support knowledge and technology exchange across the electronic devices designers.
The CERN OHL was created to govern the use, copying, modification and distribution of hardware design documentation, and the manufacture and distribution of products.

The license is published on the Open Hardware Repository (OHR), where designers can collaborate and share knowledge.

Etherpad Lite

Some time ago we wrote about Etherpad – tool that allows collaborative editing of text documents in real time.

For a long period of time this project was nearly suspended – no new features were added and only a few changes were commited in the repository. However, recently a new, refreshed version of the tool, called EtherPad Lite, has been released. Because we use Etherpad in our competence centre and PSNC, we decided to respond to the request of authors and write a brief description of changes that it brings.
