As two of the IBMers who are actively involved in the community and the project, we wanted to share our perspectives on this announcement.
Michael Dawson is the IBM Node.js community lead, chair of the Node.js Technical Steering Committee and member of the Node.js Community Committee. Joe Sepi is an Open Source Engineer at IBM and a Node.js Community Committee member.
So, what happens if the two foundations merge? Some expected outcomes include:
We don’t discount the concerns in the community, for example with respect to the independence of the projects and a potential loss of focus on Node.js. However, we believe that if the community works through the governance and structure in public, this will ensure that these concerns are considered and mitigated appropriately.
There are good working examples of other foundations within the Linux Foundation that followed a similar approach and merged projects under a single entity. These examples provide us a good starting point and prior experience to help us through the process.
Please take advantage of the community discussions (town halls/Q&As) from the foundation and project’s leadership.
