The OpenSolaris Governing Board resigns

It is sad news, the OpenSolaris Governing Board resigned today collectively with the following resolution:

Motion concerning dissolution of the OGB

Whereas Oracle has continued to ignore requests to appoint a liaison to work with the OGB concerning the future of OpenSolaris development and our community, and

Whereas Oracle distributed an email to its employees on Aug 13 2010 that set forth Oracle’s decision to unilaterally terminate the development partnership between Oracle and the OpenSolaris Community, and

Whereas, without the continued support and participation of Oracle in the open development of OpenSolaris, the OGB and the community Sun/Oracle created to support the open Solaris development partnership have no meaning, and

Whereas the desire and enthusiasm for continuing open development of the OpenSolaris code base has clearly passed out of Oracle’s (and thus this community’s) hands into other communities,

Be it Resolved that the OpenSolaris Governing Board hereby collectively resigns, noting that under the terms of the OpenSolaris Charter section 1.1 (and Constitution 1.3.5) the responsibility to appoint an OGB passes to Oracle.


The motion was accpeted without any vote against.

The OGB had not other way, as Oracle did not talk with the OGB since at least April (when the current OGB was constituted). On August, Friday 13th there was a Letter from Oracle that Oracle will shut down collaboration with the OpenSolaris Community. On August 18th, Oracle did the last public to the Mercurial source repository.

The community moves on to the free and open Illumos project.
