Open source software is playing an important role in digital stewardship. In an effort to better understand the role open source software is playing, the NDSA infrastructure working group is reaching out to folks working on a range of open source projects. Our goal is to develop a better understanding of their work and how they are thinking about the role of open source software in digital preservation in general. For background on discussions so far, review Open Source Software and Digital Preservation: An Interview with Bram van der Werf of the Open Planets Foundation and Archivematica and the Open Source Mindset for Digital Preservation Systems. Continuing this series, I am excited to interview Mark Leggott.
