I had an interesting email update about Scrum for Team System today – version 3 is now open sourced and available from Codeplex, with support provided by Crispin Parker:

"Scrum for Team System has been my full time job for the past 4 years. Now I have left EMC Consulting (to pursue my own freelance career); I intend to keep SfTS alive through an open source initiative.

With the online community and SfTS Partners assistance, SfTS can continue to be the foremost free TFS Scrum resource for agile online community. Contributions are not only welcome, but are expected! If you use and love SfTS, then please get involved"

This is a great opportunity to contribute to this excellent process template and follows the open-sourcing of the TFS Workbench Scrum taskboard recently.

Cheers,
Giles
