Software sustainability at the EGI User Forum

There was some heartening news at the EGI User Forum this week: before the first plenary was over, the term sustainability had featured at least a dozen times.

I was particularly interested in Alberto Di Meglio’s plenary talk about ‘open-source middleware and the road to sustainability’. Alberto is the leader of the European Middleware Initiative (EMI), and in his talk he identified three ways to aid the sustainability of their software: expansion of the user base, reducing costs and involving commercial partners.
I agree with Alberto's take on sustainability and take a more in-depth look on the Software Sustainability Institute's blog.
