Social news website Reddit has announced that it’s code will become open source this week under a Common Public Attribution License (CPAL) allowing developers to adapt the site and build new features.

The social news site was bought by publishing giant Conde Nast in 2006, this latest move is an attempt to move closer – in terms of traffic – to its bigger and more well known rivals Digg and Yahoo Buzz.
