Announcing the CFEngine Community Advisory Board

As CFEngine continues its evolution and adds to the large number of users with a stake in the future of the project, we have established a Community Advisory Board. The aim of the Community Advisory Board is to advise CFEngine AS and the CFEngine project core committers and team leadership on matters relating to supporting the long-term governance, structure, and roadmap of the CFEngine open source project. The Community Advisory Board is not intended to replace existing mechanisms for community input but instead augment it and provide a consolidated opinion from the broader CFEngine community.

Announcing new mailing list for developers: dev-cfengine

Dear CFEngine Community, we are proud to announce our new mailing list: dev-cfengine. Given that the contributions in both Core and Masterfiles repositories have been steadily increasing, the need for such a list became apparent. While patch submissions and code reviews will still be taking place using Github’s pull requests, this list serves the purpose of facilitating any other discussion on the development of CFEngine. We are looking forward to seeing the community being active on that list.
