Question: What do 414 GitHub and GitLab repositories, 88 domain names, 54 servers and 33 Heroku apps have in common?  

Answer: Sunlight Labs!  

Question: Hey, Kat? How are you going to get all this product transferred, worked out, housed, adopted, documented, retired, captured, shut down [cue mad libs] before Labs winds down next month?

Answer: That’s a great question! It involves our amazing open source and open data community, the quick thinking of a developer like Bill Hunt as he sees a logistical tsunami rolling in, and your continued patience and support. :-)

On Sept. 21, I promised our community regular updates on the closure of Sunlight Labs. Here’s how the work is progressing:

Meanwhile, in other news, we’re still heading to Cleveland on Oct. 14-15 for our first ever TransparencyCamp on state and local governance! So many people have reached out over email and twitter to express their solidarity, love and desire for initiatives like Sunlight Labs to live and to continue. TransparencyCamp is the perfect place to dig in and work with a larger community on how we can build new solutions to the problems that need to be solved in our cities and states. Time is running out to register, so do it here and join us as TCampers take over the Cleveland Public Library and brainstorming a more sunlit world.

The Sunlight Foundation is a non-profit, nonpartisan organization that uses the power of the Internet to catalyze greater government openness and transparency, and provides new tools and resources for media and citizens, alike.
