inaro™ is a UK registered Not for Profit Company. It is sponsored by Core and Club members who provide subscription fees and software development engineers to ensure the organization has access to the dedicated resources needed to deliver compelling code beneficial to both sponsoring partners and the broader community. Additional engineering resources are provided directly through Linaro and also through engineering partners such as Canonical Ltd. The management team of Linaro works closely with partners and the community to bring together requirements, resources, and planning through open participative forums, to ensure the cumulative work product is brought together and delivered as a validated staging tree on a strict six month release cycle. Most development occurring within Linaro is intended to flow directly into existing upstream projects. The use of a staging tree ensures people can benefit from the latest code on the latest hardware platforms in advance of all the code flowing upstream. All code developed within Linaro working groups is open source and therefore available under standard Open Source Initiative (OSI) license terms. For more details see Linaro Membership Rules and Linaro Articles of Association.
