IBM acquisition of Red Hat

Hello everyone,

As you may know, the Foreman community is now 10 years old. It started as a small project that was adopted by Red Hat, which later grew into a bigger community with developers and users all around the world.

Today is a historic day for Red Hat - we join IBM as a distinct unit.

What does this mean for Foreman?

Nothing. Our devs include those that work for Red Hat and those that don’t.

IBM is committed to Red Hat’s independence and role in open source software communities so that we can continue this work.

Red Hat will keep its mission and take part in the open source communities it supports and creates. The developers working for Red Hat on Foreman will continue in the same way as before.

If you have questions or would like to learn more about today’s news, I encourage you to review the materials below. For any questions not answered here, please feel free to contact me. Red Hat CTO Chris Wright will host an online Q&A session in the coming days where you can ask questions you may have about what the acquisition means for Red Hat and our involvement in open source communities. Details will be announced on the Red Hat blog.
