distributions-devroom -- FOSDEM (Linux) Distributions Devroom


About distributions-devroom
English (USA)

Linux distributions are critical digital infrastructure in the 2020s. In addition to their relevance today, they are some of the oldest and most historic Free and Open Source Software communities still in existence. As the context of Linux distributions changes and evolves since their origin in 1991, they remain an important fixture in digital infrastructure.

Linux distributions do important work in ensuring various versions of upstream software work well together and can co-exist. They are also often responsible for “de-vendoring” upstream software so that security fixes can be applied more quickly. Additionally, Linux distributions have become the centerpiece of other important infrastructure projects like containers and container orchestration software.

This devroom provides a unique home for the convergence of several different Linux distribution communities to share ideas and start conversations that matter to all of us. Although there are several different distributions that have different approaches to software packaging, choice of desktop environments, and various use cases, this devroom is a historic open forum that is unique to FOSDEM in making a space for all of our communities to share and learn from each other.
