Hey everyone, thanks to the rest of the RethinkDB leadership team and the CNCF for their hard work! This wouldn't have been possible without a lot of effort from our dedicated community.

You can read the announcement on RethinkDB's blog to find out about the project's next steps: https://rethinkdb.com/blog/rethinkdb-joins-linux-foundation/

We've had a lot of folks ask if they can donate to support the project. Stripe has generously offered to match up to $25k in donations (which will help fund server costs and future development.) You can learn how to contribute to the project with OSS contributions or donations here: https://rethinkdb.com/contribute

I'd like to point out that the OP of this comment is Mike the RethinkDB co-founder. While the company may have perished, his spirit for the project only got larger. Everyone buy Mike a beer.

Yes it did... MG being our fearless leader has been everything :) Working with the interim leadership team was a dream...

Thank you for being one of the most amazing communities around :)

(I'm the former community manager btw).

Don't use it, never have. Sent a coffee anyway just to say thanks! Thanks for caring and thanks for releasing under a license that allows all to use it!

That announcement post now has its own thread: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=13581375. Normally, of course, we wouldn't have two threads so closely related on the front page, but the topics do seem distinct in this case and they're both pretty major.

Thanks for doing that! I think that these topics are indeed distinct, and it's important that once people see the news, they see the leadership's plan for RethinkDB. I've been really impressed with RethinkDB's leadership through this arduous (and often uncertain) process, and really looking forward to seeing where they and the community take the project!

This should be working again (we had to move quickly to set up some of our community operations.)
