We are extremely happy to announce that Justin Erenkrantz, President of the Apache Software Foundation and member of Apache Foundation's Board of Directors, will become a member of the XOOPS Advisory Board. He is joining on the Board the Founder of XOOPS - Onokazu.

Justin is a very well known Open Source developer, who has contributed to the development of the Apache HTTP Server, Apache Portable Runtime, and flood. Along with Greg Stein, he wrote the Serf client library. He has also been known to dabble in Subversion development.

Justin is currently a PhD student at the University of California, Irvine in the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences. His research interests are in software engineering - specifically REST-based software architectures.

Creating the XOOPS Advisory Board is only one of many steps that we're undertaking to make XOOPS a professionally run, top-notch, Open Source Content Management System.

We are very excited to have a person of Justin's caliber on our XOOPS Advisory Board, and we are looking forward to working with him and benefit from his vast experience in the Open Source area.
