As reported earlier, some of movers and shakers in IT management got together last year to standardize the way to federate configuration repositories. Since then the only link available has been to a press release, which is embarrassing to say the least. Well, cmdbf.org recently came up and it is now serving a white paper that describes in more details the vision that we (the companies involved) are pursuing by this collaboration.
By linking to them from the same page, we have (by some definition) successfully federated the press release and the white paper. Way to go!
