The OSF Board of Directors met today. The agenda was posted online. The primary purpose of today’s meeting was confirmation review of the Airship project, although I opened the meeting by giving a review of some community and market stats as well as information about the recently completed Train development cycle for OpenStack.
Four members of the Airship community, Matt McEuen, Alex Hughes, Kaspars Skels and Jaesuk Ahn, gave a detailed presentation on the project, its progress during the pilot phase and how it meets the confirmation guidelines the Board has adopted. The Board raised several questions with the Airship team, reviewed feedback from the OpenStack TC and discussed the project in general. One question that created quite a bit of discussion dealt with licensing of golang libraries that may be pulled in as dependencies for certain Airship components. The Board felt that this was something that could be reviewed and dealt with by the project and OSF resources to make sure any dependencies comply with our overall license policies. With this agreed on, the Board voted unanimously to confirm Airship as a new top-level Open Infrastructure Project in the Foundation and the meeting concluded.
