RegExEditor goes open source

I originally developed the RegExEditor tool as a personal project for my own use and simply published it here as a favour to the world. As it serves my purposes well I have not had the inclination to do much further development on it.

All the time however I get requests from people for this or that feature and most of these would make the product much better. Most of the things I get asked for would be a lot of work and I just don't have the time in my busy schedule. So I decided today, after some prompting by Prados Valiente Enrique, to open source the product.

The source repository can be found on CodePlex at http://regexeditor.codeplex.com/

I have never been involved in the open source world much, other than to use the fruits of other peoples labour, so it will be an interesting experience to see how this turns out. If you have any words of wisdom for someone just starting out on their first open source project please leave them below.
