Wiki-style open source development

by Aaron

Wikipedia has worked so well for providing a pretty decent source of quality information as an alternative to the old-school encyclopedia. I’ve always wondered what would happen if someone applied the Wiki philosophy to the development of a real open source library. Anyone can make changes to the code without even being registered. What kind of results would this have?

  • Faster development?
  • More bugs?
  • More features?
  • Hackers injecting security vulnerabilities?

It would be interesting to find out. Anyone want to volunteer to run an experiment? ;)
