It’s no secret that Red Hat is a strong leader in the Open Source community. The company has been contributing to OpenStack behind the scenes quietly for some time now.
With Essex, Red Hat was the 3rd largest contributor.
With Folsom, Red Hat was second on the charts.
And now with the recent release of Grizzly, Red Hat’s contributions have been rolled up into the number one spot.
Probably the best thing is that even with that #1 spot, it represents less than 20% of the overall contributions. This means that OpenStack is benefiting from technical diversity which ultimately helps everyone. Good job Red Hat!
