February 5, 2022 - February 6, 2022

Open Mainframe Project will be featured at FOSDEM, happening virtually on February 5-6. 

Sarah Julia Kriesch, a DevOps Consultant at Accenture and Open Source Contributor at openSUSE, will be presenting a session about the Linux Distributions Working Group.

Default community distributions are running in the same issues for special architectures. Every Linux distribution has got mostly separate maintainers and hardware distributors are handling these communities really often disconnected. That has been identified also for the architecture s390x. Therefore, openSUSE, Fedora and Debian have established together with IBM a Linux Distributions Working Group for a better collaboration together and with the goal to receive better support. In this presentation you should receive an overview about a good collaboration between Linux distributions and what you can achieve together with such a Working Group.

Details can be found below:
