The Mage Open Source Community Alliance have published an open letter to the Magento community to announce a new initiative designed to focus on ensuring the future of open source Magento.

With this open announcement we are letting you know that there will be a community organization driven fork of Magento. The purpose is to secure Magento’s long term viability for all the businesses depending on it.

This initiative has been started by the companies and individuals signed below. If you want to publicly show your endorsement and be informed on future updates, you can sign the open letter here.

Mage-OS will be an upstream compatible, lightweight, composition of Magento Open Source packages. Some of those packages will contain changes, and some will be entirely new. It will be compatible with all existing Magento 2 extensions and integrations.
