Corporate Open Source Management - Organic or Controlled? - Frank Rowand, Sony
The manner in which companies interact with open source software ranges from dispersed benign neglect or anarchy to centralized micromanagement.

How do companies address OSS management and OSS issues through Open Source Technology Offices or other mechanisms?

A compilation of areas of concerns, roles, and responsibilities will be presented. Examples of how they are addressed in various companies will be shared.

Open Build Service in Debian - Andrew Lee, Collabora
It is impressive how much time and resources a team can save by using the OBS to manages their packages creation and distribution. OBS is a generic system to build and distribute packages from sources in an automatic, consistent and reproducible way.

Andrew Lee will cover the benefits of using OBS, explain some of it features and workflow for all your packaging and releasing needs, like automatically build package from scratch on multiple target distros and
architectures, easy access through QA to the developer's repo to generate new images with the changes for testing before integration into the production repo, vcs-like workflow as branch code, send merge requests and review submissions and flexible to connect additional resources to empower the backend worker(builders)
even with different architectures. At the end tips on how to setup and optimize OBS will be provided.

Introduce and Status Update About COLO FT - Zhang Chen, Fujitsu
COLO is an ideal Application-agnostic Solution for Non-stop service in the cloud. Under COLO mode, both primary VM (PVM) and secondary VM (SVM) are run in parallel. They receive the same request from client, and generate response in parallel too. If the response packets from PVM and SVM are identical, they are released immediately. Otherwise, a VM checkpoint (on demand) is conducted. COLO prototype has been realized, and most of the patches has been merged in QEMU community. In this talk, we will talk about the COLO implementation in QEMU, the new designed COLO-Proxy, discussing on problems we've met while developing COLO. and report the latest progress from Fujitsu, Intel, Huawei.
For more info, refer to COLO project wiki:

Civil Infrastructure Platform: Industrial Grade SLTS Kernel and Base-layer Development - Yoshitake Kobayashi, Toshiba
The Civil Infrastructure Platform (CIP) is creating a super long-term supported (SLTS) open source "base layer" for industrial grade software. We have been working on security fixes and some backported features since the moment we decided that Linux kernel v4.4 would be the first SLTS version. In this talk, we will describe the current development
status of the SLTS kernel and testing environment. First, we'll explain our kernel development policy. Then, we'll describe the functionality that has been backported. Second, we'll talk about testing before using our base-layer on real products. We have been developing a test framework to collect and share test results. To build it, we don't want to duplicate existing work such as KernelCI, Fuego and others. For that reason, we are trying to collaborate and contribute to such projects.
And finally, we'll discuss the future roadmap.
