The open source community[edit]

The lead should have a small paragraph about the relation between the Free Software community and the Open Source community. This would be supported by the now named Subgroups and schisms section. Belorn (talk) 16:47, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Style[edit]

Specifically regarding where quotations are more prolific, there seems to be some mixing of 'free software movement' and 'free-software movement' used. Which is proper? Raider480 (talk) 01:50, 28 February 2014 (UTC)

Free and open-source software movement[edit]

I have added alt name free and open-source software movement' to the lead, but I am having second thoughts. I wonder if free and open-source software movement is a distinct topic in need of stubbing or should it be discussed here. I am familiar with the free software vs open software debate, but I think related literature on the movement often talks about one free and open-source software movement, of which both the free software movement and open-source software movement are parts. GBooks for "Free software movement" gives about 5k hits ([1]), "open-source software" just a little less, about 4k ("https://www.google.com/search?tbm=bks&q=%22Free+software+movement%22#tbm=bks&q=%22open-source+software+movement%22"), and "free and open-source software movement", about 1k ([2]). Open-source software movement redirected to Open-source software, but movement =/= software, just like free software =/= free software movement, through that article does discuss open software movement a bit in its history (Open-source_software#End_of_1990s:_Foundation_of_the_Open_Source_Initiative). So I have the following questions to the community:

I wonder how much content of the current free software movement and open-source software needs splitting/rewriting because of this. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 06:23, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
