The OPAL Team
What it isThe OPAL Team is an ad-hoc organization dedicated to managing the OW2 technology platform in this transition period. The active members of the OPAL Team are members of the community and of the OW2 Management Office. Thay are: J�r�my Casery (OW2-Bull), Armel Lannois (Bull) Samuel Quairau (INRIA), Giampaolo Fiorentino (OW2-Engineering), Emmanuel Decaen (XSalto), Stefano De Panfilis (Engineering) and Cedric Thomas (OW2). Xavier Moghrabi, former ObjectWeb sysadmin, although busy with his new job, is also helping when necessary.
The issues at handThe team was established mid-june 2007 as a result of a crisis meeting held in Grenoble to deal with the recurring problems we had on the technology platform. In a nutshell, these problems come from a) aging machines inherited from ObjectWeb and b) some inefficiencies as we were setting up the new organization. The new environnement built at XSalto is gradually taking us out of the current turbulences. Armel Lannois presentation at the workshop provides a fair description of both the legacy ObjectWeb environement and the target one at XSalto as well as an overview of the issues at hand.
