Board Meetings and Activities

OpenSFS prides itself on being deeply committed to the philosophy of open source. We bring together a wide range of organizations and individuals to solve problems that move open source file systems forward.

In the spirit of open source, we want to provide greater visibility into OpenSFS inner workings as well. Effective in 2015, the weekly OpenSFS Board meetings are open to all OpenSFS participants. These meetings are held weekly and include discussions on Lustre contract funding, communications strategy, community building initiatives, financial updates, and more.

As with any organization, from time to time the Board may need to meet in closed session regarding sensitive matters, including those pertaining to litigation, employment, contract negotiation, highly confidential information or as advised by counsel. However, we expect that such instances will be infrequent, and we look forward to having open Board meetings with broad participation as much as possible.

By allowing participants from the OpenSFS community to join the meetings, we look forward to providing insight and transparency to the decisions occurring at the OpenSFS Board level. If you are interested in joining the meetings, please contact OpenSFS for the Zoom meeting url.

Meeting day: Wednesday
Meeting frequency: weekly
Time: 12-1pm Pacific

Additionally, we will continue to distribute minutes from the Board meetings to the OpenSFS participants mailing list. To subscribe to the participants mailing list, please visit

Our priorities continue to focus on our commitment to the Lustre community. Fostering broader community participation is key. We look forward to your ongoing participation in OpenSFS.

Best regards,

OpenSFS Board of Directors
