Incus: Community forks LXD

Subscribe to our newsletter

Following Canonicals decision to take back stewardship of LXD from container specialist Aleksa Sarai (Suse) has created a fork of the project under the name Incus. After some discussion with Aleksa and encouragement from the community, have made the decision to take Incus under the umbrella of Linux Containers and will commit to it the infrastructure which was previously made available to LXD.

The goal of Incus is to provide a fully community led alternative to Canonical’s LXD as well as providing an opportunity to correct some mistakes that were made during LXD’s development which couldn’t be corrected without breaking backward compatibility. In addition to Aleksa Sarai, the initial set of maintainers for Incus will include Christian Brauner, Serge Hallyn, Stéphane Graber and Tycho Andersen, effectively including the entire team that once created LXD.
