This approach allows developers to collaborate, improve, and customize the software according to their needs. Open source projects often encourage community participation, transparency, and innovation by fostering a collaborative environment where anyone can contribute to the development and improvement of the software. It aligns with Kiln's philosophy to contribute to the ecosystem by making certain tools accessible to everyone.
