The Mambo Foundation, home of Mambo, the world's leading Open Source Content Management System, announced that SpikeSource has created a fully-integrated, one-click installer for Mambo.
SpikeSource is a testing and certification company that strives to promote interoperability and compatibility of Open Source software. Users can now use SpikeSource’s installer to install Mambo, Apache, MySQL, and php without worries about incompatibilities or security holes brought on by incorrect or improperly configured components. SpikeSource tools give users an easier, faster, safer way of installing Mambo and other Open Source software.
Going forward, the Mambo Foundation's status as a registered non-profit means that SpikeSource is able to provide greater support for Mambo, including monitoring for security issues and providing ongoing testing. The SpikeSource test bed is unique in the industry, providing over 30,000 daily tests on 6 platforms.
"The Mambo Team views the SpikeSource move as a vote of confidence and we look forward to expanding our relationship with them. The SpikeSource testing and installation routines plug an important gap in Open Source by providing users peace of mind and helping insure interoperability of components,"? said Ric Shreves, Director of Advocacy and PR for the Mambo Foundation.SpikeSource is also one of the key players behind the Business Readiness Ratings system. Backed by Carnegie Mellon, O’Reilly, SpikeSource and Intel, the BRR system is being proposed as a new standard model for rating open source software. It is intended to enable the entire community (enterprise adopters and developers) to rate software in an open and standardized way. Mambo was used as one of the initial test cases and was given a total score that places the software in the 94.64 percentile (94.64%) - very high marks.
