There were three new project launches, <a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-qlhhuky-l-j/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >AppHub</a>, <a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-qlhhuky-l-t/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >CHOReVOLUTION</a> and <a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-qlhhuky-l-i/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >OCCIware</a>, and three annual reviews, <a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-qlhhuky-l-d/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >OCEAN</a>,&nbsp;<a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-qlhhuky-l-h/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >OpenCloudware</a>&nbsp;and <a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-qlhhuky-l-u/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >RISCOSS</a>. With these and <a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-qlhhuky-l-o/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >XLcloud</a>, all in all, we are now directly participating in six <a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-qlhhuky-l-b/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >collaborative projects</a>.</p> <p> Over the next few months we will leverage two of these projects, <a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-qlhhuky-l-n/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >RISCOSS</a> and <a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-qlhhuky-l-p/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >AppHub</a>,&nbsp;as we focus our efforts on our fundamentals, the promotion of the OW2 <a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-qlhhuky-l-x/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >code base</a>. The former will help us enhance our <a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-qlhhuky-l-m/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >SQuAT</a> quality program to make our projects more attractive while the latter will help us implement the OW2 appstore, the next stage of our long-term strategy. We are fully aware that a collateral requirement of this plan is to improve the governance of our projects – watch this space.</p> <p> Here is what we are building: an open source organisation with well-governed quality projects that are easy to download and deploy. To further increase our ability to execute we are in the process of recruiting a new CTO and, needless to say, the OW2 Management Office will be working even more closely with our Technology Council and our Project Leaders.</p> <p> Please note we will shortly start the process for the OW2 board and chairperson <a href="http://newsletter.ow2.org/t/r-l-qlhhuky-l-c/" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >elections</a> to be held between February 19 and April 9.</p> <p> Thank you for your ongoing support,</p> <p> <a href="mailto:cedricthomas@ow2.org" target="_blank" style="color:#0099CC;text-decoration:none;" >Cedric Thomas</a></p> <p> <p>PS: Project leaders: Do not forget to use the OW2 Forge to tell everybody about your project updates.
