I didn’t realize until yesterday but you can join the OpenStack Foundation as an Individual Member . The cost is free and everyone is invited. Taking advantage of this will allow you to keep up on the state of this cloud standards effort.
OpenStack has gained a lot of momentum in recent months, and many are interested in following the progress of the project and/or contributing to it in a variety of ways. With the creation of the new OpenStack Foundation, you can express your needs… They state their mission as:
“The OpenStack Foundation is an independent body providing shared resources to help achieve the OpenStack Mission by Protecting, Empowering, and Promoting OpenStack software and the community around it, including users, developers and the entire ecosystem.”
They even have an OpenStack blog to keep up with what is going on.
