Google unveiling open-source service Thursday

Greg Stein, an engineering manager overseeing some open-source efforts at Google, plans to describe "a new Google service for the open-source community" on Thursday at the Open Source Convention in Portland, Ore. "We're putting the final touches on it as I write this blog post," he said Monday.

He offered no further details, but one possibility, given Stein's background as leader of the Subversion software project used to manage source code and Google's penchant for making information available over the Internet, could be an online repository for open-source projects.

Stein, a former employee of source code management company CollabNet, also is chairman of the Apache Software Foundation.
