this is David Bigagli the founder of OpenLava, I am writing on behalf of the OpenLava project. As some or most of you might have noticed the GPL2 OpenLava project is under attack by the IBM corporation. The github software repository have been shut down under the US DMCA law and now the OpenLava website www.openlava.org, hosted on Amazon S3, which provides the source code to the latest 4.0 and 3.0 version will be shut down in the next 24 hours unless the source code is removed.
IBM claims that the versions of OpenLava starting from 3.0 infringe their copyright and that some source code have been stolen from them, copied, or otherwise taken from their code base.
I have developed most of the OpenLava code and I have reviewed all contributions. All this development was done without access to any IBM code. All IBM claims regarding the source code are false and fabricated.
OpenLava is helping users in need of open source LSF compatible software to run their business. OpenLava brought the LSF experience to a wider community thanks to Platform Lava, to which anybody can contribute, help or get inspiration for other opensource projects.
IBM does not have a technical answer to OpenLava and to the benefit its users have. They cannot articulate why their software is better than OpenLava for the money they charge for it. IBM fears OpenLava because it does provide a better functionality than their own software and that's why it can only reply with a lawsuit by hiring: Kirkland & Ellis LLP.
We have no choice at this stage but to remove OpenLava 3.0 and 4.0 from our web site. We will bring back the original OpenLava 2.2 to github and www.openlava.org.
With your community support OpenLava is and will always remain a open source project under the GPL2 license, as stated in the COPYING file under the root of the source code and in every source file.
