Web Kit Open Sourced

Big news from Dave Hyatt: Apple has launched http://webkit.opendarwin.org, with live CVS access to WebCore, JavaScriptCore, and Web Kit. They’re accepting patches and contributions, and the bug database is public. WebCore and JavaScriptCore have always been open source, but not Web Kit, and the new open development model is major change.

(This new site consistently uses “WebKit” (as does Hyatt); Apple’s official developer documentation prefers “Web Kit”. I’d love to see this clarified.)
