Once again, we will be at the Open Source Leadership Summit, the invitational event organized by The Linux Foundation. This year, the event is happening in Sonoma (we’ll miss the last years snow in Squaw Creek) and we will be presenting the state of GrimoireLab to our friends there.
Our week in LA for the Open Source Summit North America was not only about CHAOSS.

The Linux Foundation Open Source Summit North America 2017 is over, and we are already on the road for the next conference! But less brief some activities related with CHAOSS project during the last Open Source Summit in LA:
Today is an important milestone for GrimoireLab. Our little project has joined the set of The Linux Foundation projects to help open source ecosystems development. That Metrics Grimoire rewriting we started two years ago, to make easier for OSS projects and community managers to analyze software communities and development processes, has become part of a big family.
During Open Source Summit North America opening keynotes, Jim Zemlin, The Linux Foundation executive director, has presented CHAOSS (Community Health Analytics Open Source Software).
Last year we missed the LinuxCon North America, but this won’t happen again for the Open Source Summit in Los Angeles. There’ll be an important announcement for Grimoire Lab during Monday’s keynotes.
Sadly, you’ll need to join us there, follow the streaming, wait for the press release or join the new Grimoire Lab mailing list to get some news in advance…
But, there are not one but several more things related with Bitergia and Grimoire Lab happening during the Open Source Summit North America:
We are hiring a Python developer to help us developing GrimoireLab, our stack for software development analytics. We are looking for a smart, high-energy person, with a passion for learning, contributing and collaborating in free, open source projects to work with us in Madrid (Spain) area.
North Bridge and Black Duck published last January their 2016 Future of Open Source Survey Results with a lot of interesting conclusions. Maybe the biggest one it’s that Open Source continue gaining force inside the IT business, but its management is chaotic because the lack of process.
Most common problems related on the survey were:
- Nearly 50% of companies have not formal policy and process for selecting and approving open source code.
- One of the major problems of that is security. 47% don’t have a formal process in place to track the code and only 19% of vulnerabilities are detected and fixed automatically.
- Nearly 1/3 has no process for identifying tracking or solving known open source vulnerabilities.
- Over 1/2 companies has no responsible to identify and tracking remediation.
