We believe a healthy and vibrant open source community is vital to the success of all open source projects, and in this vein, Sylabs has decided to fork the Singularity project and its dependencies to https://github.com/sylabs.
A new Slack workspace for this fork has been established at: https://singularityce.slack.com/
A new mailing list / Google Group for this fork has been established at: https://groups.google.com/g/singularity-ce
Sylabs remains committed to keeping Singularity open source and freely available. With your help, we hope to build an active and inclusive community around the project.If you have questions or suggestions, we’d love to hear from you! Come talk to us on Slack!
Dave and community,
A fork of a project can be confusing to the community of users and contributors, however we firmly believe that for an open source project to thrive, the leaders, contributors, potential contributors, and users all need a clear understanding of the project aims, the way in which it will be managed, and how they can give input around important decisions.
Sylabs has demonstrated our commitment to Singularity over the past three years. We’ve continued to contribute features, manage releases and security issues, engage with users on GitHub, Slack, and the Mailing Lists. We’ve been a consistent presence in the community Zoom calls, and hope that we have provided useful information and listened to feedback in these venues.
Rather than promises with a lot of words, we’d ask that you observe how we and the community move forward, and let us know what we could do to reinforce your trust.
