Could Red Hat lose JBoss founder?

Filed under
Linux

Just months after Red Hat acquired JBoss, it's possible the start-up's leader, Marc Fleury, won't be staying on.

Fleury went on paternity leave in early December and is expected back "in a few months," Red Hat said in a statement. According to Fleury's automated e-mail response, it's his fourth child, and Fleury will return to work on March 15.

But an e-mail Fleury sent to a select group of JBoss colleagues takes a very different tone and raises questions about his prospects at Red Hat.

"I am going to take some time off to take care of family and myself. I am increasingly experiencing diminishing returns on my emotional and professional investments at Red Hat," Fleury said in the December note seen by CNET News.com. "Working with all of you at JBoss has been a pleasure and probably the apex of my short career."

University students create award-winning open source projects

In my short time working for Clarkson University, I've realized what a huge impact this small university is making on the open source world. Our 4,300 student-strong science and technology-focused institution, located just south of the Canadian border in Potsdam, New York, hosts the Clarkson Open Source Institute (COSI), dedicated to promoting open source software and providing equipment and support for student projects. While many universities offer opportunities for students to get involved in open source projects, it's rare to have an entire institute dedicated to promoting open source development. COSI is part of Clarkson's Applied Computer Science Labs within the computer science department. It, along with the Internet Teaching Lab and the Virtual Reality Lab, is run by students (supported by faculty advisers), allowing them to gain experience in managing both facilities and projects while still undergraduates.

Linux 4.17-rc2

So rc2 is out, and things look fairly normal. The diff looks a bit unusual, with the tools subdirectory dominating, with 30%+ of the whole diff. Mostly perf and test scripts. But if you ignore that, the rest looks fairly usual. Arch updates (s390 and x86 dominate) and drivers (networking, gpu, HID, mmc, misc) are the bulk of it, with misc other changes all over (filesystems, core kernel, networking, docs). We've still got some known fallout from the merge window, but it shouldn't affect most normal configurations, so go out and test. Linus Read more Also: Upstream Linux support for new NXP i.MX8
