Introducing Myself and Seeking Your Input and Continued Support


As I prepare to take on the role of CEO of Gluster, I wanted to send a quick note to the community. First, I want to thank you for your support of Gluster, and let you know it was a big factor that influenced my decision to join the company. We wouldn’t be anywhere without the passionate support (not to mention scrutiny, testing, advice, constructive criticism, and code contributions) from the members of the community. Second, I wanted to assure the community that I wouldn’t have taken on this role if I wasn’t committed to the open source model. I (and the rest of Gluster) remain convinced that embracing open source principles is key to producing better software, driving greater adoption, and ensuring greater compatibility. Finally, I wanted to let you know that I welcome your feedback, and that I can be reached at bgolub at gluster dot com. If you are interested, I have some further comments (slightly longer-winded) about my enthusiasm for joining Gluster on the new company blog.

    The initial rounds of conversation around the planning of content for release 8 has helped the project identify one key thing – the need to stagger out features and enhancements over multiple releases. Thus, while release 8 is unlikely to be feature heavy as previous releases, it will be the...
