OpenStack: Allegation of abusive conversation under investigation

Days after opening its nomination process for Individual Member elections, the OpenStack Foundation is investigating allegations that an executive within one of the Foundation’s corporate member companies may have pressured an Individual Member candidate to withdraw her nomination for a board position.

Shanley Kane, Director of Product Management at Basho, was one of the nominees for the OpenStack Board of Directors elections opened for nominations on July 25. On Twitter Saturday, Kane described a correspondence she received from an unnamed executive soon after learning she was a nominee.
