Hi everyone,

We have published the OpenStack Foundation 2015 Annual Report: http://www.openstack.org/assets/reports/osf-annual-report-2015-FINAL.pdf

It includes reports from the Foundation Staff, Technical Committee, Board Committees and some Working Groups as well. Our community covered a lot of ground last year, and it’s motivating to see the progress. 

In addition to delivering to software release and shifting to a new technical governance model, we were able to launch the first interoperability testing program for OpenStack Powered products, building on the work of the DefCore committee which will continue to evolve and improve the program. We launched the Project Navigator based on tags developed by the Technical Committee and User Committee to simplify the project landscape for users. We forged new relationships with adjacent communities like OPNFV and Kubernetes to address important new markets, and we saw working groups within the community like the Enterprise WG and Product WG grow their influence. Finally, we were able to secure our IRS 501c6 tax-exempt status, which was a lengthy process and major event for the broader open source community. 

With more than 35,000 individual members, the OpenStack community continues to grow and tackle new challenges.

Thanks to all the contributors who helped put the report together,
