Hi everyone,

I’d like to extend a warm thank you to Mike Perez for his years of service as community manager for Ceph. He is changing focuses now to engineering.

The Ceph Foundation board decided to use services from the Linux Foundation to fulfill some community management responsibilities, rather than rely on a single member organization employing a community manager. The Linux Foundation will assist with Ceph Foundation membership and governance matters.

Please welcome Noah Lehman (cc’d) as our social media and marketing point person - for anything related to this area, including the Ceph YouTube channel, please reach out to him.

Ceph days will continue to be organized and funded by organizations around the world, with the help of the Ceph Ambassadors (https://ceph.io/en/community/ambassadors/). Gaurav Sitlani (cc’d) will help organize the ambassadors going forward.

For other matters, please contact council@ceph.io and we’ll direct the matter to the appropriate people.

Neha Ojha, Dan van der Ster, Josh Durgin
Ceph Executive Council
