Individual Members: Candidates Profiles


As an early open source enthusiast engineer and a contributor to several
OW2 projects (CompatibleOne, XLCloud, erocci), I've greatly appreciated the support of OW2 organization for the promotion of these projects. I strongly believe open source software quality and success comes from individual contributors commitment to the projects and their goal. Applying to the position of individual members representative, I want to help OW2 becoming a place for open source projects contributors and customers to meet.

Applicant Bio

Since 10 years, Jean Parpaillon has been a contributor to several open source projects, mainly in the domain of infrastructure softwares: operating systems (Kerrighed, XtreemOS), IT management (Mandriva Pulse2), cloud interoperability (CompatibleOne, erocci).
He is passionate about distributed systems and collaborative work. He has contributed as an individual, through software editors companies and through collaborative projects.


The OW2 consortium has the critical mass to be the reference point in the industry driven open source community worldwide. However, to play this role it requires the involvement of more institutions and individuals outside Europe and North America. In particular, the involvement of more participants from Asian and Southern American countries (e.g., China, Brazil, Argentina, etc.) is required. I would like to help OW2 to become a more international fostering the collaboration among current members in different geographical areas and new ones. I think that the consortium will benefit also from the establishment of active partnerships in the development of new open source initiatives and projects that may have OW2 as an aggregation point.
