Apache CloudStack is now much more than just Citrix
Recognize the PPMC and have them raise their hands. Moving to Apache has had some huge returns for CloudStack, in a very short period of time. As you already know, we pushed out the first Apache CloudStack release in early November. The first release was the hardest, because we had a lot of work to do to meet Apache standards, vetting the licensing of the project, getting the infrastructure stood up, and much more. We've been pleasantly surprised - no, pleasantly astounded - by how quickly a community has stood up around Apache CloudStack. Obviously, this is what we were hoping for from Apache - the whole point is to develop a community around CloudStack. But we were surprised by how quickly this has happened. We've seen folks like Chip Childers, Hugo Trippaers, Mice Xia, Marcus Sorensen, John Kinsella - and too many other folks to name - stand up and join the community. We've always been proud of CloudStack as a software project, but we're doubly proud that it's grown beyond a product and become a real community.
