The goal of OPS is to free not only the use of OSS but even the establishment, thus exploring ways of creating a self-organizing bazaar in it's true meaning employing an approach we call the FlockOfBirds.
OPS4J wants to provide means for companies to benefit from OSS without the risk/need to be directly involved in the highly volatile participation process.
OPS4J will try to establish a commercial "web of knowledge" that loosely connects individuals and companies that can provide not only services and products based on OPS4J technical platform but also
provide help to restructure the customers in-house development according to OSS and OPS4J principles,
provide help to feed non-core software investments back into OSS (not only OPS4J) for the benefit of the customer (low maintenace/risk, Stallmans freedoms) and the OSS community (commercial donations),
provide professional-grade support on OPS4J in the lists and via IRC etc. (goal is answer time within 30minutes)
