As you might expect, Open Source @ Google works just a little different. Thanks to their scale, they are able to push the “monorepo” paradigm to the extreme where they compile all the critical open source projects from their own repository.

The topic for this episode was the result of reading a number of online articles which we references during the discussion:
- How Google manages open source
- Open Source Patching
- Open source: Google wants new rules for developers working on ‘critical’ projects
- ‘We’re finding bugs way faster than we can fix them’: Google sponsors 2 full-time devs to improve Linux security
