Google Wave migrates to the Apache Software Foundation

Community interest in continuing the development of Google’s Wave has led to a proposal to migrate the code base to the Apache Software Foundation (OSM).

Google abandoned in August its Wave project due to the low adoption rates but the project leaders announced they were going to release the Wave client and server as open source software called “Wave in a Box” (WIAB) under the Apache licence. Wave in a Box is now the basis of the project proposal posted to the Incubator wiki

The proposal was posted to the Apache Incubator wiki by Google and Novell employees, as well as several independent developers. The Apache Incubator is the place where potential future Apache projects can be submitted to the open source organisation for consideration.
