At the OpenStack Design Summit and Conference in October 2011, Rackspace announced that it would be moving the OpenStack open source project to a separate foundation.  Following that, OpenStack invited community participation to help guide the process of moving to a foundation.  There have been a number of lessons learned during this process and a couple of members of the OpenStack Drafting Committee would like to share those with you.  This session will be led by Alice King, Vice President & Associate General Counsel, Rackspace, and Eileen Evans, Vice President & Associate General Counsel, Hewlett-Packard Company.
