GNOME 3.17.91 beta tarballs due (and more) (responsible: jjardon)
We would like to inform you about the following:
* GNOME 3.17.91 beta tarballs due
* String Freeze
Tarballs are due on 2015-08-31 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.17.91
beta release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules which were
proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable schedule so
everyone can test them. Please make sure that your tarballs will be
uploaded before Monday 23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded later than that
will probably be too late to get in 3.17.91. If you are not able to
make a tarball before this deadline or if you think you'll be late,
please send a mail to the release team and we'll find someone to roll
the tarball for you!

Canonical, through Martin Wimpress, announced just a few minutes ago the immediate availability for download and testing of the first Beta builds for opt-in flavors of the forthcoming Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) operating system.

Why business should bet on open source
Among the benefits of OSS is that it is hardly ever a standalone product. Most OSS is built on other open-source projects. Because of the way it is licensed, these enhancements are then passed back to the open-source community, so the software constantly evolves.

Open source is certainly more accepted in the enterprise, said Tony Lock, distinguished analyst at Freeform Dynamics. “It is suitable for all businesses, not just for webscale businesses.”
