Icehouse, the 9th release of OpenStack, is out! Thanks to the 1200+ contributors. OpenStack Icehouse
I've been called a "leading figure" in the Open Source movement, and my interests are ensuring OpenStack is a true, neutral Open Source project and foundation.
I have been involved in Open Source for decades, and am likely best known for my work with Apache, both as a developer as well as co-founder of the Apache Software Foundation. I also serve on the board of OSI and OuterCurve and was recently awarded the O'Reilly Open Source Award at OSCON. I work at Red Hat under the office of the CTO on Open Source and Standars.
