The OpenNebula Project is happy to announce OpenNebula Addons, a new way to contribute to OpenNebula!. An OpenNebula Addon is an open source, production-ready software extension designed to extend the functionality of OpenNebula, but can not be included in OpenNebula distributions because of license conflicts. OpenNebula is released under Apache 2.0 license.
The OpenNebula project does endorse these extensions and supports them through the user mailing list. Moreover, the project ensures its full compatibility with current and upcoming releases of OpenNebula. This will allow us to offer new state-of-the-art functionality from companies and organizations that for any reason can not release the software under the Apache license. Participation in OpenNebula Addons requires the contributors to allocate resources to maintain, improve and support the Addon.
In few hours we are announcing the first contributions to OpenNebula Addons, we will keep you updated, so stay tuned!
Executive Director at OpenNebula
