Open Compliance Training Helps Set-Top-Box Manufacturer Leverage Linux

At The Linux Foundation, we are lucky to work directly with many of the most innovative companies in the world. We all know the big names like Google, IBM and Intel but as Linux use has expanded into new segments - especially in the embedded industry - we get to work with smaller, but no less innovative companies. The best part is helping them make the most of Linux by getting involved in the community. As an example, we recently completed software compliance  and community involvement training at set-to-box manufacturer Altech UEC. We traveled to South Africa to help them understand how to deploy Linux and open source software to power their set-top-box technology. Altech made use of The Linux Foundation’s  Compliance Training resources to educate their developers and their executives on the process...

openSUSE Tumbleweed status for the week of April 22, 2011

Here's a short note as to the status of some recent activity in the openSUSE:Tumbleweed repo: the kernel is at the 2.6.38 release level tracking the upstream stable 2.6.38 releases. lxde (and its sub-packages) was added calibre was added other smaller packages were added KDE update seems stable and working. It's in the openSUSE:Tumbleweed:KDE repo if anyone wants to test it out now. I'll be working next few weeks to merge this into the main openSUSE:Tumbleweed repo as my bandwidth allows. There is a GNOME 3.0 Tumbleweed repo at openSUSE:Tumbleweed:GNOME. It's properly building right now, but the same caveats...

Working Sessions at Collaboration Summit 2011 Focus on Operationalizing Compliance

Open source compliance garnered its fair share of attention at the recently-completed Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit April 6-8 in San Francisco.  There were great presentations in a compliance track and a legal track, as well as working group sessions for the SPDXTM technical and business workstreams.  And there was a great turnout for the Linux Foundation’s offering of the full-day compliance training course immediately after Collaboration Summit.  Most of all, attendees reinforced their commitment to compliance as the way to do business and focused their attention on ways to operationalize compliance activities and make them more efficient and ingrained in everyday business practices. The Compliance track featured presentations by a variety of compliance professionals. Kim Weins spoke about OpenLogic’s study reporting low levels of license compliance in the app development space. Phil Odence of Black Duck Software, one of the leaders of the SPDX project, overviewed SPDX accomplishments and future directions.  I spoke about the Linux Foundation’s Open Compliance Program, highlighting compliance resources such as our training courses, white papers, and self-assessment checklist.  Bradley Kuhn of the Software Freedom Conservancy offered a retrospective on twelve years of FLOSS license compliance activities.  And Jim Markwith of GE Healthcare Information Technology provided a corporate and legal perspective on compliance processes. We’re putting together a compliance track now for LinuxCon North America 2011, which comes to Vancouver in mid-August.  There’s still time for people to submit a presentation proposal online, or you can email me with suggestions or questions at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
