Abstract: collectd is a community open source software project which was started by a student (an FAU alumni) and which has many corporate users and contributors. Most of the project’s initial organization and even its licensing had to change to make project maintenance sustainable and to better serve the project’s diverse user base. This talk will highlight some problems that were encountered and discuss the current organization of the project.
Speaker: Florian Forster is an FAU alumni and collectd maintainer. In his day job he’s a Site Reliability Engineer at Google. On parental leave, he is currently improving the house, not software.
