Xen Project : Lessons Learned!
In April this year, Xen became a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project. Almost 6 months later it is time to take stock. I will start with a brief introduction of the Xen Project, explain why Xen moved to the Linux Foundation, explore the impact on the community and provide an outlook for the future.
This talk is for developers and members of the Linux community who care about the success of their projects. I will use examples from the Xen community to explore the challenges and benefits of going non-profit, draw lessons and explore tools to help make your project more successful. I cover a wide range of topics ranging from community management, collaboration infrastructure, marketing, and good governance to align the interests of a project’s stake-holders. By employing each of these techniques in a complementary fashion, we can ensure the long-term success of a project.
