On another note, Novell's CTO Jeff Jaffe talks about FOSSA in an interview, and describes Identity as one of the pillars. When asked about how open-source their identity product line is, he honestly states:
Very little. We have some open-source projects; but it's still growing. From the point of view of where the customer wants go with agility, we need it all, but in practice it's going to mature at a different rate.Given their interest in the open source space, I wonder if the folks at Novell are looking to existing open source initiatives in the identity space and how they might work together?
