Hello everyone,

The devroom named "Open Source Virtualization and Cloud" (OSVC2012)
scheduled at FOSDEM on both days, February 4-5 2012, is a meeting
opportunity for the developers of all the innovative open source
projects around virtualization and cloud computing.

OSVC2012 will include:

* state-of-the-art presentations of virtualization/cloud projects
* workshops to brainstorm and discuss new user requests, new developer
ideas, and the possible synergies between projects

All information about the devroom will be posted on the wiki at:

software or open source license (its license must meet the FSF
definition of Free Software or the OSI definition of Open Source)
