IBM Announces Open-OVF Project

Announcing the open-ovf project and source code availibility.

Hi folks, we are announcing the availibility of source code for the open-ovf project. OVF is a standard packaging format for virtual machines and software appliances. The open-ovf project is seeking contributors and users to help establish OVF as a transparent and platform-nuetral method for packaing virtual machine images.
We anticipate being able to deploy a single OVF package to either Xen or KVM. Eventually expanding that list to include VMware, Hyper-V, and other platforms. Getting to that point will require community contributions.
For a quick summary of OVF and the open source project, see the .pdf from the recent Xen summit located at: http://www.xen.org/files/xensummitboston08/open-ovf-proposal.pdf
The open-ovf project is hosted at sourceforge: http://open-ovf.wiki.sourceforge.net/

And source code is hosted in a git repository: http://gitorious.org/projects/open-ovf/repos
Scott Moser <smoser@us.ibm.com> is the project maintainer.
