OpenStack Announces Cactus Release
"I am impressed with the progress that has been made since the Bexar release just 10 weeks ago and believe the projects and code are tracking to fill the promise of being the ubiquitous, open source cloud solution, " said John Purrier, Director of OpenStack@Rackspace and Product Development for the Rackspace Cloud.
Changes to OpenStack's governance were also announced. The newly elected Project Team Leaders (PTL) for Nova, Glance, and Swift are Vish Ishaya, John Dickinson and Jay Pipes. The new PTLs will join other elected personalities, such as Thierry Carrez, Rick Clark, Eric Day, Soren Hansen, and Ewan Mellor on the OpenStack Project Policy Board.
Openstack has a new five step process for bringing projects into Openstack: publish the project's source code, gather community feedback, evaluation criteria, Project Policy Board review and decision, and optional incubation period.
