A few months ago, I wrote about the relocation of our community. The bits and bolts that power our community have since been migrated, and all is running wel. During that progress, we had a couple of awkward moments along the lines of: "to whom will Jive transfer ownership of the DNS records for Ignite?" We started discussing that topic, and concluded that it would be good to have a legal entity to represent our community.

 

We've been working on a plan ever since, that today, I'd like to share with you. We're planning to start a foundation, the Ignite Realtime Foundation. Its objective: to promote, support and advance development of software in the Ignite Realtime Open Source community.

 

If you're interested in this effort, have questions, or want to contribute in effort or resources, please reach out. We've set up a new chat room at irf@conference.igniterealtime.org that we use for discussions on the subject.
