Purpose and Objective

Akraino Blueprints benefit from the health upstream projects, such as Kubernetes, Linux, DPDK. In order to promote, market, and bring technical content and value of To bring better values from the Blueprints into broad adoption, it is proposed to establish Akraino regional communities and work with local communities as the Akraino open source Downstream. It is expected this will help Akraino downstream communities in collaborating, integrating and sharing the Blueprints with Akraino Community, and drive additional value by new projects across verticals with Blueprints to accelerate deployment of use cases.


To better operate the regional communities, each community will need to follow the policies and guidelines from LF Edge and Akraino, including the following explicit rules:

  • Antitrust Policy - Linux Foundation

If you have questions about these matters, please contact your company counsel, or if you are a member of the Linux Foundation, feel free to contact Andrew Updegrove of the firm of Gesmer Updegrove LLP,which provides legal counsel to the Linux Foundation
  • Regional community activities must also be in compliance with local laws
