Over the past few weeks a few of us who have been involved in the MeeGo
community infrastructure have been trying to solve a problem relating to MeeGo
Apps : apps.meego.com
After a few weeks when it became clear we could not resolve this problem we
asked for a deadline when the LF would announce this restriction to the
community. Eventually I proposed that the community start discussing this issue
with or without an announcement from the LF on Tuesday 2nd August - and here we are.
Last week I suggested that the following statement summed up my understanding
and although I asked for an alternative, one did not appear:
"The Linux Foundation have told us in private conversations that they will not
permit apps.meego.com to be served from the MeeGo.com infrastructure hosted by
them. They do not have the resource at this time to provide a statement giving
their reasons. We can not assess what other services may be impacted in the future."
Ibrahim, if you have anything to add we would be grateful.
I have tried to present a factual problem statement and some options at :
Obviously, since we don't know what the problem is, it is hard to work out a
solution - but I have proposed some options.
In the meantime we have moved ahead to provide apps.formeego.org (thanks to
Thomas for acquiring that domain - see
https://bugs.meego.com/show_bug.cgi?id=20531). There are plans being worked on
to setup infrastructure to host apps there - the community needs to decide how
to manage that infrastructure and domain.
On a personal note I am very disappointed by the Linux Foundation's response to
this situation. There has been no open discussion, the verbal reasons provided
were vague (although, I must emphasise, I am not doubting that there are valid
concerns given the nature of the legal framework in the US) and insufficient
effort has been made to assist the community in resolving (or even
understanding) this problem - as I mention, since we're not clear about what the
reason is we have no idea what other services may be impacted.
