Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "MetronProposal" by OwenOmalley
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2015 17:19:31 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "MetronProposal" page has been changed by OwenOmalley:

  OpenSOC was developed by Cisco over the last two years and pushed out to Github (
under the ALv2. However, the development was mostly closed and has largely stopped. As evidence
of the inactivity, users have complained that pull requests are not answered for a while
Finally, no public releases of OpenSOC have been made. From an Apache point of view, the current
community is not viable.
  However, some of the developers of the project have left Cisco and have found interest from
several others that would like to work together to form an active and open community at Apache
starting from the current OpenSOC code base. A message to the current support group proposing
moving to Apache got a single positive response.
+ In general Apache accepts only voluntary contributions and avoids
+ hostile forks. In this case, given that the community is demonstrably
+ dead, it seems fair to fork the existing code at Apache to allow a new
+ community to work on it. Once incubation starts, we will send a
+ message pointing to the new home to the OpenSOC support group.
  Because Cisco is not currently interested in being involved, the project expects to change
their name. The project would like to use Metron, although we will perform a podling name
search to check for conflicts.  Metron, meaning measure, is half of the greek root for the
word 'telemetry.'  Metron is also a DC Comics character who “... wanders in search of greater
knowledge beyond his own”.
