Open sourcing the open sourcing process?

Listening to a very interesting podcast on MonkeyType a tool built at Instagram that collects type information at runtime and then can generate static type annotations, another bit that caught my attention was this exchange about the open source process at Instagram/Facebook:

Question: In terms of process, is there already an existing set of guidelines at Instagram for producing open source libraries or modules? How does the logistical process looks like?

There is a pretty well defined process. I was actually pretty surprised at how well defined and easy it was. I was pretty impressed how quickly we were able to do it.

A while ago Facebook open sourced the specs and design of their custom servers. Maybe over time we will see open source processes for open sourcing.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
