The beginning of any open source project is always filled with “what-ifs,” particularly with the ambitious goal of being as transparent as possible and putting the OS ownership, Intellectual Property, and the project’s direction into the hands of the community. AlmaLinux has done just that this last year, and continues to move forward in a positive direction while maintaining a stance of “all community, all the time.”
In this talk, I’ll give an overview of the last year in AlmaLinux and talk about the highs and lows, milestones reached, lessons learned, how we grew our community and how they helped us to grow, scaling out to match them, maintaining continuous, fast acting responsiveness to the community’s requests, community governance, open source governance in general, and everything community in AlmaLinux. I’ll also look forward to what we can and will do for the community moving forward and ways that we can continue to improve, so that we can all improve.
