Part of my (computer science) research work involves a relatively new open source technology that I feel has been overlooked by the research community. It would seem valuable to raise the awareness of this technology to the research community in a few different subdomains of the field. Would a paper that describes the open source technology, explains how it works, and demonstrates its utility with some original, albeit simple, work be ethical? While I have contributed to the open source technology, I am by no means a primary creator, and would intend to include some of the main contributors and original creator as secondary authors.
The question Should I write a paper on open-source software I've built? is related, but this question is asking about open source software that I only contributed to, as one of hundreds of contributors.
