Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "LibcloudProposal" by PaulQuerna
Date Tue, 27 Oct 2009 06:38:34 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "LibcloudProposal" page has been changed by PaulQuerna.
The comment on this change is: initial committers list, dependencies.


  Currently libcloud has several contributors, but not a large user community other than a
few companies.  We would like to increase our userbase as part of the incubator process.
  == Core Developers ==
- TODO: Figure out initial committers list
+ Alex Polvi who wrote most of the original code is familiar with open source from working
at OSUOSL and at Mozilla. Tom Davis drove much of the re factoring of the initial code base.
Jed Smith, Ivan Meredith, Jeremy Orem, jcsalterego and Paul Querna (ASF member) have all contributed
mainly to developing provider specific drivers.
  == Alignment ==
  Currently there are not many Apache communities involved with cloud computing or python
based infrastructure.  We believe introducing such a community is a good thing for the Apache
Software Foundation.
