Xen Project Participates in Round 11 of Outreachy

This is a quick reminder that the Xen Project is again participating in Outreachy (Round 11). Please check the round 11 page for more information about the December 2015 to March 2015 round of interships.

Outreach Program for Women has been helping women (cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people get involved in free and open source software worldwide. Note that the program has been extended and now also targets people from more groups underrepresented in FOSS: specifically the program is open to residents and nationals of the United States of any gender who are Black/African American, Hispanic/Latin, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander.

Xen.org Trademark Policy For Review

Xen.org Community:

The newly created Xen.org Trademark Policy is now available for review from the Xen Advisory Board. This new policy defines the rules of how the Xen trademark can be leveraged by members of the community as well as commercial offerings. It is available for community review from today, April 1 until April 16, 2008 at which time all comments will be taken into account and the final Trademark Policy published. Please direct all comments to this blog posting or send to legal@xen.org.

FIT Comment – The document refers to the FIT or “Faithful Implementation Test.” This is not yet complete within the Xen Advisory Board but we are actively taking feedback on what would be considered “Xen” as many people take different parts of the hypervisor and use it for their benefit, thus making it difficult to state exactly what “Xen” is.
