IT Jungle reports
that Sun has set up an advisory board for the OpenSparc project.
"First up, Sun has created an independent OpenSparc advisory board,
which includes two representatives from Sun as well as three other industry
luminaries. "Just like any well-behaved open source project, we want to
establish an independent advisory board," explains Fadi Azhari, director of
marketing and business development for OpenSPARC. This board will steer the
OpenSparc project and, after a 12-month period, it will create a permanent
governance board for the project. The initial board members include Simon
Phipps, chief open source officer at Sun, and David Weaver, a senior
systems engineer on the Sparc T1 development efforts inside Sun.
