Open Source Software and the GÉANT Community

(Timezone - Europe/Amsterdam)
Magdalena Rzaca, Nicole Harris (GÉANT)

As Open Source Software (OSS) is becoming more and more important for the GN5 Project as well as NRENs, the purpose of this call is to identify the gaps in the support of current OSS initiatives and collecting community feedback regarding main OSS problems that our community is facing on a daily basis.

Anyone from the GÉANT community with an interest in OSS is welcome to attend and help us set priorities.
