OS3G - Open Source, 3rd Generation

A (humble) attempt to publish news from the trenches where Free/Libre/Open-Source Software is brought to the mainstream -- and Francois Letellier's blog, too

So What's Next?

The ObjectWeb consortium will end on Dec 31, 2006. As explained in previous entries, an association called OW2 is being incepted.

This is the opportunity for me to thank (again) many people, actually so many I cannot mention them all. Special congratulations to those who were at the orgin of ObjectWeb. Their endeavour is going a long way. Thanks to the executive committee members, who made it possible and who, day in day out, run the community and acted, often behind the scenes, to let good things happen. Thanks to the developers and contributors: without them ObjectWeb would be an empty shell.

Personnaly, the consortium being over, I will no longer serve as executive director (it really goes without saying!) On January 1, 2007, I will keep serving as project director at INRIA. Staff from the project I lead will sometimes be involved in the OW2 operations. Yet INRIA will be a member of the association, but no longer the legal representative as it used to be for ObjectWeb.

Seasons greeting. Merry Christmas, happy new year, best wishes for 2007 to all the community members and friends around!
