OpenSolaris Governance Board resigns - The H Open Source: News and Features - 0 views

  • As it had previously threatened, the OpenSolaris Governance Board (OGB) has now resigned. The dissolution motion was proposed and passed unopposed in a fourteen minute long meeting of the OGB. The motion cited the fact that Oracle had ignored requests to see a liaison appointed to work with the OGB and had distributed an internal email terminating the OpenSolaris project. Another part of the dissolution motion stated, "The desire and enthusiasm for continuing open development of the OpenSolaris code base has clearly passed out of Oracle's (and thus this community's) hands into other communities" before resolving that the members of the OGB collectively resigned.
    It's official now. OpenSolaris is abandonware, leaving OpenBSD as the major open Unix platform still supported.
