In this forum, our goal is to serve as the stewards, incubators, and drivers (when feasible) of system software enablement for OpenPOWER Foundation hardware. As such, this open forum / working group will work to ensure the availability of all software required to boot, run, and manage Linux on OpenPOWER compliant systems. This includes platform firmware, virtualization environments, Linux itself, toolchain (compilers, core libraries, debuggers, etc.) and platform management software. This does not include software specifically used to enable end user application execution. The goal for all software is availability under an appropriate open source license.
