Use cases behind CIP story
Agustin Benito Bethencourt <agustin.benito@...>
CIP is doing a significant effort to be present in many events to explain what are the motivations and goals of the group. The technical activity is about to start so there is very little to show and it will be the case for some time.
What can we focus on the coming months from the communication point of view?
I think there is a huge value in advertising the use cases that justify the commitment from companies like Toshiba, Hitachi and Siemens in CIP.
Some of those use cases are completely unknown for a wide range of developers, even many of those who are "Open Source veterans".
By exposing some of the challenges involved in those use cases CIP would not just provide a meaningful inside about our environment but also the opportunity to have a fruitful conversation with many of those engineers who might think that CIP idea of a Super Long Term Support kernel (system) is "anti-cultural".
So I would like to encourage CIP main drivers to provide and advertise some of those unique use cases. I find them extremely interesting. I hope many others will too.
