ClarkConnect Transition - Big Picture
Hello everyone. For those of you who followed the ClarkConnect
transition over the last half of 2009, this will be a summary of the announcements
made earlier in 2009 (#1 and #2).
Seeds of Change
In mid-2009, ClearCenter acquired key assets -
including ClarkConnect - from Point Clark Networks. With new resources and capabilities in place,
we were able to deliver on several new and exciting initiatives in a short 6 month time frame:
With our new resources and capabilities, along with our commitment to the community, customers and partners,
we are ready for new and exciting times ahead!
New Name, Open Philosophy
This is much more than just a "re-branding" of course.
With the name change will come a philosophical change -- our intention is to make ClearOS an open project.
For a variety of reasons, ClarkConnect was never promoted as an open source platform with external contributions.
We have now thrown that philosophy out the door! Over the first half of 2010, all of the
ClarkConnect source code will move to the
ClearFoundation. From now on, add-ons, feature changes,
bug fix patches and contributions of any kind will be welcomed and encouraged.

We sincerely hope you'll join us as we take our next steps in this exciting journey.
