OSDL Achieves Carrier Grade Linux Milestones

The Open Source Development Lab (OSDL) has announced that a number of milestones have been achieved, providing materials for input from the Open Source development community.

The Carrier Grade Technical Scope White Paper, the Linux Requirements Definition V0.5, and the Validation Framework V0.5 are now available on OSDL's web site at www.osdl.org. Interested parties can view and participate in CGL development through a new OSDL developer site, developer.osdl.org. The Technical Scope White Paper addresses the overall scope of the CGL Working Group's effort, including the market, target application areas, specific technical issues to be addressed, and standards compliance. The CGL Requirements Definition V0.5 is an evolving document that will help define the CGL platform requirements. The CGL Validation Framework V0.5 provides the overall structure for creating and executing validation suites that will test for compliance with forthcoming OSDL Carrier Grade Linux specifications. OSDL's new developer site, developer.osdl.org, is a resource dedicated to the development, integration, and validation of CGL. It contains code repositories, a bug tracking system, a build system, and other resources required by the CGL Technical Working Group developers to collaborate and construct CGL. The Open Source Development Lab (OSDL) is an independent, vendor-neutral, non-profit organization dedicated to enabling Linux and Linux-based programming for enterprise and carrier-class functionality worldwide.
