Dear RIOTers,

As some of you might have noticed there exists a new initiative hosted 
by Linux Foundation called EdgeX Foundry [1]. 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 
differentiation."

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 
participating?

Please let us know in a timely manner about your concerns. General 
feedback is very much welcome as usual.

Cheers,
Thomas
