As some of you might have noticed there exists a new initiative hosted
by Linux Foundation called EdgeX Foundry . From their website:
"EdgeX FoundryTM is a vendor-neutral open source project hosted by the
Linux Foundation building a common open framework for Industrial IoT
edge computing. ... The initiative is aligned around a common goal: the
simplification and standardization of the foundation for tiered edge
computing architectures in the Industrial IoT market while still
enabling the ecosystem to provide significant value-added
Some central people in the RIOT community consider this as an
interesting project to join as it holds the possibility to expose RIOT
to a broader audience and might also attract future contributions.
RIOT would join as an open source project and thus become an Associated
Member which does not imply joining the Linux Foundation.
Before taking any further actions we wanted to know if anybody in the
community feels uncomfortable or has any objections to RIOT
Please let us know in a timely manner about your concerns. General
feedback is very much welcome as usual.
