While we don't yet know the exact cause of the exodus happening at ownCloud Inc recently, there is a seemingly-related announcement that today the company has setup the ownCloud Foundation.

Markus Rex of ownCloud announced this morning, "Today we announced the creation of the ownCloud Foundation which will guarantee the viability and availability of free ownCloud now and in the future. We have made a commitment to open development in a blog recently and want to extend that further to ensure that the community is providing the direction, planning and atmosphere that is best for the project. The ownCloud community has matured a lot over the last few years and is certainly to play a bigger part in its own destiny."

Rex concluded with, "This is an exciting step toward making sure the ownCloud community remains in the open and is governed by all of you."

More information will be offered at foundation.owncloud.org.
