[OW2 Newsletter - September 2012 - From the OW2 Management Office]

Dear OW2 Members, dear All,

As we are now about to complete our Software Quality Assurance and Trustworthiness (SQuAT) program, OW2 is entering a sequence of significant evolution. SQuAT will be fully launched at OW2con'12 in November. We are already preparing two subsequent strategic moves: the enforcement of SQuAT and the opening of a project appstore. The first move touches on the governance of the OW2 projects: all mature projects will have to be “SQuAT compliant”. This will enhance the quality, both actual and perceived, of the OW2 code base. The second move will grow the dissemination of the projects: we will increase the exposure and facilitate accessibility of the OW2 projects. More downloads will be

the  reward for well demonstrated quality.

In September, after a well deserved summer break, we are in the final preparation stages for a season of top-line events cebtered on cloud

computing, including the Open World Forum and Cloud & IT Expo in Paris, the China Open Source Week, the CompatibleOne launch at Cloud Expo West in Santa Clara, culminating with OW2con'12. See details below.
We are pleased to welcome IBROWSE, a software and sevices company joining us from Brazil where the OW2 community is building a strong momentum.

Thank you for your contributions and on-going support,
