# Companies usually wind down the week before Christmas,
# so you don't usually see them make a lot of strategic
# moves or announcements. And so it was with some marked
# astonishment that I received an anonymous tip that Oracle
# ceased development of Lustre right before the holidays.
# Not out of a job quite yet, Lustre engineers have
# reportedly been encouraged to apply for other positions
# within the company

Not unexpected (if true), but fortunately it is open source
and other companies (employing ex-Lustre developers) have
already set up to maintain it.

cheers,
Chris
