Hi. I'm Bonnie Corwin, and I'm the manager of the OpenSolaris Infrastructure Engineering team.
Our team owns and works on multiple functional areas:
the operational infrastructure that supports the http://opensolaris.org website and its use;
the infrastructure that will support open development on the site;
platform development for the site;
content development on the site;
support for external contributor programs and OpenSolaris Governing Board (OGB) processes such as setting up new projects;
and various other areas.
Being on this team and part of this program is a roller coaster ride because everything is new and changing all the time. We own multiple interconnected but different areas of work and we sit between Sun and the OpenSolaris community. But I like the challenge of working on new projects that require bootstrapping and planning and new ways of thinking and operating and problem-solving.
I'll try to write once in a while to chronicle at least some of what's going on in the areas owned by my team and talk about the progress and demands and lessons learned as this whole program continues to evolve and grow.
It's been a grand adventure so far and promises to keep providing new opportunities as we continue forward.
