We are please to announce the Faucet Foundation has been established and 
registered as an Incorporated Society.  The Foundation has been 
established with the following aims:
  - To curate the Faucet platform as a production quality reference 
implementation of an SDN system,
  - To host the infrastructure for a Faucet community, and
  - To ensure that the Faucet platform and the benefits of using it are 
available to the widest possible community.

The Foundation has a board representing industry, R&E networks and 
universities, all of which have contributed to the development of 
Faucet.   The board are still establishing plans for the Foundation, we 
encourage you to provide suggestions or feedback via 
foundation@faucet.org.nz.  Board members will be at the Faucet 
Conference to talk to users and developers.

As part of the move to a Faucet Foundation the GitHub repository will 
soon be moving from reannz/faucet to faucetsdn/faucet. Further details 
will be posted before this happens.
