Is atlassian Answers available for my company? I'd like to use it as a knowledge base

We need a knowledge base like Atlassian answers and the wiki doesn't really do the right job.

Is Atlassian answers a product we can use?

Update:

We've announced Confluence Questions! Check out the Beta: https://www.atlassian.com/questions

Are the new features of Answers also being pushed into this repo?

I'll pull them in every so often. I haven't done these most recent changes yet.

Is this project still active? When I go to the repo I get: "You do not have access to this repository". Is this product already commercial in the meanwhile? Thx.

We hid our fork for the time being. We're in discussions on how to offer this in the right way.

Jeremy, is there any update about opening atlassian-osqa?

Hi Chance,

Atlassian Answers is built using OSQA - http://www.osqa.net/ - a free, open source Q and A system. So not an Atlassian product, but something that is available for you to download and deploy at your own organisation.

Hope that helps,

Andrew.

@Jeremy: Any updates on this?

Not yet. We're considering how to handle Q & A in our product portfolio.

Yes, I am interested, as well. Too bad - the answers site is VERY nice. I can imagine it being a product in itself (probably what someone is thinking already, I am sure). . . . Maybe, integrated into JIRA and/or Confluence??

Any updates if Atlassian will be releasing "Anwsers" would be nice to have it with a crowd integration. Or even as a beta would great as-well

I would try to get Jeremy's changes as it's a lot better than it was originally, unless the trunk code has moved on.

I think OSQA is GPLv3, so presumably Atlassian have to contribute the code back...?

We're going through a security audit before opening it up. I'll post back here when I have the code available for download.

Great... GPL is viral isn't it... don't you also have to release code for everything you integrate OSQA with?!

We've just changed some hard-coded credentials in favor of configurable options for ldap login, that's all. We'll open it up without the hard-coded values.

Are you still planning to make this code available for your customers to download and run?

We haven't made progress on it yet, but I'll post back once there's an update.

I'm interested in this as well. Any update? I see below your last update was April 16th.

Also very curious.

Any update on this Jeremy?

Confluence questions is the go-forward approach Atlassian is taking to provide a solution. It's currently in beta. You can sign up here: https://www.atlassian.com/questions

Yes, that's right.

Nevertheless, and IANAL, but the licence requires that the source code be made available.
