OW2 Newsletter - March 2010 - From the OW2 Management Office

Dear OW2 Members, Dear All,

We have a busy community schedule this month with the meeting of the technology council on March 15, the meeting of the board of directors and our general assembly on March 17, and the elections of corporate and individual members representatives to the board of directors (candidate registration is now open, all details to apply here).

OW2 is a non-profit open source organization and, unlike most conventional companies, we thrive on transparency which is why, every year, we hold an election. It is not about politics and endless discussions, it is about democracy and community empowerment. This is your community, it will become what you want it to be: it is both your right and your duty to participate.

This is also a month of active communication: come and visit us at Solution Linux, where OW2 will be a major attraction with our Village on the exhibition floor, our one-daydedicated conference track and our wine and cheese party. We are launching the 2010 OW2 Programming Contest, check our (very affordable) sponsoring packages. The press published our OW2 CEOs' market perspectives, which we issued following a tradition brought to us by our friends from the Open Solutions Alliance.

We have scheduled the migration of all our applications to our more powerful machines on March 19. Don't plan anything major for that day!

Thank you for your contributions,">Cedric Thomas
