ONF is merging with Linux Foundation
After an incredible 13 year run over which time ONF has built and launched numerous open source projects into the ecosystem, the ONF has now graduated the work into independent projects hosted by the Linux Foundation (read the press release). This move creates three new, independent, community-led projects:
Each of these major project areas hosted under LF is being led by a new independent Governing Board, giving the community complete authority over the direction of the projects and the application of the approximately $5M in funding that ONF is contributing to financially seed the projects.
The ONF’s existing Technical Steering Teams (TSTs) leading each project will continue to guide the technical work.
All current ONF Members are being welcomed to join the new projects with graceful transition support, including pro rata credits for any member’s remaining ONF membership term that can be applied for joining the new projects if joined before January 31, 2024.
An informational webinar was hosted on January 9, 2024 at 7am PT (view recording) to share the plan for the new project and offer options for companies to join as founding members before a January 31, 2024 deadline. ONF members can now sign up for the new projects under LF here:
