OCAB Principles

Besides facilitating a forum for peer and partner interaction with some of the most experienced cloud/NFV experts in the industry, the board will be asked to contribute in the following ways to enhance the open community efforts to date:

  • Provide guidance and oversight in the evolution of OpenContrail
  • Meet monthly to discuss governance, strategic direction and community
  • Actively influence roadmap definition, release priorities and project direction
  • Ensure project transparency and pro-active sharing with the broader community
  • Represent the broader user/dev community and encourage open dialog

While we will continue to evolve the project principles, we believe that the key principles will uphold the culture of the OpenContrail effort to date:

  • Continue to innovate and leverage proven agile development methodologies
  • Maintain clean, well-behaved interfaces between all software components (internal and across ecosystem)
  • Encourage open, direct feedback and respect the inputs of others
  • Focus on solving real problems at scale and in an open, extensible way
  • Encourage experimentation and iterative development
