The move to a Big Tent will have a significant impact on vendors in the OpenStack ecosystem, including Red Hat. Helping to lead Red Hat’s OpenStack efforts is Mark McLoughlin, OpenStack technical director at Red Hat. McLoughlin was the first OpenStack developer at Red Hat and was identified as the leading code committer to the project in 2013. McLoughlin currently serves on the OpenStack Foundation’s board of directors.
In a video interview with eWEEK, McLoughlin discusses how the changes in OpenStack governance and project inclusion will have an impact.
