The OSF Board of Directors met today, the agenda was posted online. The Board covered several topics, including approving the 2020.06 RefStack guidelines and approving an 3-month extension to the Platinum member renewal deadline for the 4 members whose renewal term is set to begin on January 1, 2021.
The most newsworthy agenda item in today’s board meeting was the confirmation review of the StarlingX project. Two members of the StarlingX community, Ian Jolliffe and Saul Wold, gave a detailed presentation on the project, providing an update on its progress during the pilot phase and how it meets confirmation guidelines the Board has adopted. The Board asked several questions of the StarlingX team before voting unanimously to confirm StarlingX as a new top-level project in the Foundation. Congratulations to the StarlingX team and community!
I also wanted to provide an update we didn’t get the chance to cover during the meeting. This update includes a recap of the first-ever virtual PTG (we learned a lot and overall it was a success!), the latest information on OpenStack’s 10th birthday campaign, Ussuri highlights and a follow up on Ironic. You’ll also find information on the next OSF Community Meetings happening later this month (June 25 at 1500 UTC and June 26 at 0200 UTC) and details on the virtual OpenDev event series kicking off June 29. Finally, you’ll see some ways you can help, as well as, participate in all of the marketing campaigns currently in motion.
