Abstract
(English)
This document is about supporting the start up of AALOA, an AAL Open Association. It explains the rationale behind this effort, sketches an initial comparison with similar organisations, examines the problems that we will find on the road and what are the main issues. It is a practical, short guide to the FLOSS (Free/Libre/Open Source Software) communities and introduces the software commodity and coopetition concepts, which are used to justify the needs of a convergence process towards a common shared platform for AAL. These concepts in addition to the AAL market fragmentation are the essence of the call for action expressed from the Manifesto of AALOA, which is reported in the appendix A. This document clarifies also the changes to the initial strategy of universAAL for creating a community of interested developers around its own platform as proposed in Description of Work. AALOA does not represent the specific community of universAAL project. AALOA will be the community of communities and universAAL will be one of those communities working in synergy for preparing the AAL market breakthrough. The document reports about the status of the AALOA community, the current governing board composition, the communication infrastructures and tools activated, and the list of projects already incubated in AALOA. It sketches a very embryonic roadmap for the association and gives an overview on what one should expect from it.
