Hello Gluster community,

Today marks a new day in the 26-year history of Red Hat. IBM has finalized
its acquisition of Red Hat
which will operate as a distinct unit within IBM moving forward.

What does this mean for Red Hat’s contributions to the Gluster project?

In short, nothing.

Red Hat always has and will continue to be a champion for open source and
projects like Gluster. IBM is committed to Red Hat’s independence and role
in open source software communities so that we can continue this work
without interruption or changes.

Our mission, governance, and objectives remain the same. We will continue
to execute the existing project roadmap. Red Hat associates will continue
to contribute to the upstream in the same ways they have been. And, as
always, we will continue to help upstream projects be successful and
contribute to welcoming new members and maintaining the project.

We will do this together, with the community, as we always have.

If you have questions or would like to learn more about today’s news, I
encourage you to review the list of materials below. Red Hat CTO Chris
Wright will host an online Q&A session in the coming days where you can ask
questions you may have about what the acquisition means for Red Hat and our
involvement in open source communities. Details will be announced on the Red
Hat blog <https://www.redhat.com/en/blog>.
