The OpenStack Foundation starts to look at projects beyond OpenStack
OpenStack基金会开始查看OpenStack之外的项目。

Over the last few years, we've seen the launch of a number of open source foundations like the Cloud Native Compute Foundation, the Cloud Foundry Foundation and others. Most of these run under the Linux Foundation, but one of the largest open source foundation outside of that group's orbit is the OpenStack Foundation, which - at least until now - has solely focused on the development of the OpenStack cloud computing platform.

Times are changing, though. After spending the last few days at the bi-annual OpenStack Summit, it's becoming increasingly clear that the OpenStack Foundation is starting to look beyond the OpenStack platform and that the future of the organization may just look a bit more like the Linux Foundation, though with a more streamlined vision that will have the group focus on open infrastructure projects that align with its current interests but that don't necessarily need to be part of the OpenStack platform or follow the current guidelines for these projects.

This move could send ripple through the open source ecosystem because if it's successful, it'll create another organization that will sit next to the Linux Foundation, the Apache Foundation and others, yet with the community support and experience that the OpenStack team has built. It may also set up the OpenStack Foundation to compete for hosting projects that would otherwise have looked at moving to the Linux Foundation, which will could set up an interesting rivalry between the two.

Boris Renski, the co-founder and CMO of Mirantis, who made an early bet on OpenStack a few years ago, told me that if there's a team that can pull this off, OpenStack CTO Mark Collier, executive director Jonathan Bryce and VP or marketing and community services Lauren Sell are the best people to do it. In his view, opening up the Foundation to more projects is exactly the right move, especially now that the project is stable and has the resources and community to tackle new challenges.

What would this new Foundation focus on? As Bryce told us, the Foundation plans to look at a couple of focus areas: data center cloud infrastructure, container infrastructure, edge computing (and Collier, too, seems to be especially interested in this), continuous integration/continuous delivery and - potentially - machine learning and AI.

There are still plenty of unanswered questions, of course. What kind of license would these new projects follow under, for example? Bryce and Collier hinted at the Apache license, which the OpenStack project has long used, too, but there seems to be some flexibility. And what's going to be the first project the foundation will bring in? Or will it be incubated within the Foundation?

So far, the reaction of the community has mostly echoed that of Renski, though I've also heard some skepticism as people worry that this new approach will take some focus away from the current OpenStack project. Bryce, Collier and Sell don't think so, but all three noted that they would listen to the community. Chances are, though, this new approach will re-invigorate the existing community and infuse some new purpose into the Foundation and the events it organizes.

One thing the Foundation did categorically count out, though, is changing its name. Bryce noted that "OpenStack" is a broad enough term to accommodate new projects - and the Linux Foundation is still the Linux Foundation, too, after all, even though Linux is just one of the many projects it now hosts.
