Like most working webmasters, I’m a tremendous fan of Open Source software that enables inexpensive, customizable (and often free) solutions to many of the issues we face on a daily basis, such as content management, gallery building, community building and more.

Finding the latest Open Source projects has become easier now with the launch of Ohloh, a free directory of Open Source projects that could put an end to the need for browsing through SourceForge and other depositories of Open Source information and files.

Founded by ex-Microsoft employees Scott Collison and Jason Allen, the blog-style site “collects software metrics from a variety of sources including the project’s source code and the software development infrastructure used by the project’s development team.”

Launched today and still under development, the new site promises to be a worthy addition to every webmaster and programmer’s bookmark list. Check it out and find the next tool to push your site ahead!
