Hi all,

Today we announced the creation of the ownCloud Foundation which will 
guarantee the viability and availability of free ownCloud now and in 
the future. We have made a commitment to open development in a blog 
recently and want to extend that further to ensure that the community 
is providing the direction, planning and atmosphere that is best for 
the project. The ownCloud community has matured a lot over the last few 
years and is certainly to play a bigger part in its own destiny.

We have added lots of info at foundation.owncloud.org (including 
preliminary bylaws, elections, etc) but wanted to provide a few 
Membership is free and open to everyone.  
We have proposed four working groups to focus on in the beginning:
- Technical
- Security
- Evangelism
- ownCloud Contributor Conference

For those of you who are already very involved with ownCloud, nothing 
changes in how you contribute, and we are very thankful for your 
continued support.

If you want to join the Foundation public mailing list or sign up for 
emails that share Foundation announcements, you can do so on the new 
foundation.owncloud.org site.

This is an exciting step toward making sure the ownCloud community 
remains in the open and is governed by all of you.
