CentOS PaaS SIG
SIG Status: Approved
Board Member Helping Bootstrap: KaranbirSingh
The CentOS PaaS SIG will work on delivering multiple PaaS Stacks that are built, tested and delivered into the CentOS Ecosystem for end user consumption, run as a service and also provided in various formats ( rpms, containers, images etc ) for other efforts in the CentOS Ecosystem, that can derive value from this content.
Build and deliver an OpenShift Origins stack, that tracks upstream releases.
Provide container and rpms for other efforts in CentOS Ecosystem that futher build on top of OpenShift, including the Atomic SIG, the Cloud SIG and the Virt SIG.
Provide a quick start guide for end users to get started with OpenShift on their own installs.
- Provide regular releases and updates as needed.
2. Mailing List and Communication
Work relevant to CentOS build systems, etc. will take place on centos-devel mailing list. Work related to upstream interfaces will take place on the relevant lists, starting with the openshift origin content be discussed at http://lists.openshift.redhat.com/openshiftmm/listinfo/dev.
Note that we will aim to also deliver a service hosted within the CentOS Infrastructure, therefore content will traverse multiple CentOS forums, lists, channels, sites.
