Join OpenStack Board member, Rob Hirschfeld, talking about how the OpenStack community in working together on a baseline for vendors. This core definition (aka DefCore) effort has implications for users, operators and vendors that helps shape the community. What is it? DefCore sets base requirements by defining 1) capabilities, 2) code and 3) must-pass tests for all OpenStack products. This definition uses community resources and involvement to drive interoperability by creating the minimum standards for products labeled "OpenStack".
