The Linux Foundation has revealed plans to form a new foundation that will support osquery, a project that provides visibility into endpoints. The new foundation will be devoted to growing and maintaining a neutral community around the project.
According to the Linux Foundation, developers from Dactiv, Facebook, Google, Kolide, Trail of Bits, and Uptycs, among others, have already pledged support for the project under the new Foundation.

We are thrilled to see the growing engagement with this project, and we believe the creation of the osquery Foundation is the best next step to support the community’s ongoing development and priorities,” said Teddy Reed, an engineering manager at Facebook and longtime osquery contributor.
