Hello OpenDaylight Community,
I would like to thank each and everyone of you for another successful release - especially as it comes in these difficult times of the COVID-19 virus. Particularly I would like to thank the following folks:
- Robert Varga & Jamo Luhrsen for holding the fort on the Kernel and Integration projects respectively.
- Luis Gomez for among other things his work integrating and interfacing with the self managed projects as well as for his work interfacing with ONAP for ONAP distributions during last 6 months
- All the PTLs participating in the release
- Daniel De La Rosa for successfully managing the Magnesium release
- Casey Cain for his various endeavors on the tooling side (Migration of the Wiki from Mediawiki to Confluence, mailing lists, etc.)
- Brandon Wick, Jill Lovato and Amar Kapadia for the marketing material
Also please check out the coverage of the release in the Q1 Networking Newsletter from the Linux Foundation that I have included below.
