Roundup 2007 Session - Forking Open Source Java

Fully formatted shownotes can always be found at

This is one of a series of sessions recorded at the Java Posse Roundup conference, 2007. Audio in this series was recorded using a simple mic setup to record the whole room, so quality may not be as high as a normal "studio" recording. The sessions are being released in no particular order. While pains have been taken to remove any inappropriate material, there is a chance that some may have been missed, however this should not be common.
