Icehouse, the 9th release of OpenStack, is out! Thanks to the 1200+ contributors. OpenStack Icehouse
I served on the drafting committee for the OpenStack Foundation governance documents on behalf of Red Hat. In part because of that experience and in part from getting to know the project as an interested observer and advisor to OpenStack contributors, I have come to appreciate the technical, business and social importance of OpenStack and believe a successful independent nonprofit foundation is critical to the success of the project. Therefore I would like to contribute as an individual to helping ensure that the Foundation is a success.
