Unless I'm mistaken, it seems that Launchpad is incompatible with open source development because everything there is under NDA.

Assume you are developing an open source application, which you also hope to sell on Ovi in closed source form. (Yes, there are people who will buy such software, just as there are people who buy CDs even though they could download the same music for free.)

Suppose Launchpad publishes some Maemo 6 API changes under NDA. You can't then use the new API in your application, if others will see that API being called when they view your git or svn repository.

How is this supposed to work?
