A distro for industrial R&D to be released by Électricité De France

EDF develops and uses a custom Linux distro which has been based on Debian since 2003. This distro covers scientific workstations, HPC clusters and servers. Each major version is maintained in-house for security and bugs with a five-year life cycle. Specific tools ensure business application compatibility across different releases. Everything is streamlined towards industrial R&D and fits in corporate IT infrastructures. This talk will present the project goals, features and announce the creation of a community site for collaborative Open Source development of the distro. A dedicated kick-off event will also be announced in Paris during 2016. We are looking forward to questions, remarks and contributors.
