OpenStack Discussions

The results are in: Manila is an OpenStack incubated project!


In today's meeting of the OpenStack technical committee (comprised of 13 representatives across multiple vendors, charged with enforcing OpenStack ideals (such as Openness, Transparency, Commonality, Integration and Quality), deciding on issues that impact multiple programs, providing an ultimate appeals board for technical decisions and general oversight), Manila was voted into official incubation status!

Explicitly the technical committee formally accepted the creation of shared file systems project, as well as the incubation of the Manila project. This is indicative of strategic alignment with OpenStack, acknowledgement of Manila being developed within the OpenStack community according to established processes, and in recognition of recent momentum in the project – new contributors, reviewers, and deployers.

Congratulations to the entire Manila team – we’re looking forward to lots of great work in the coming months!
