I’m the lead of the IEEE SA Open Community Advisory Group. One of the topics that came up during this week’s meeting was governance.
A little background: IEEE SA Open is a new platform that will be hosting open source projects under the IEEE umbrella. Each project will be allowed to make its own choices regarding governance of the project.
The current idea is to use Mozilla report on Open Source Archetypes as a starting point for helping projects make governance choices.
I think, in developing such a guide for projects, it would be great to bring in the resources we already developed here in SustainOSS and to use Ostrom’s model to ensure we thought about all aspects of governance.
I invite you to join the conversation at IEEE SA Open in the Community Advisory Group. I expect we’ll set up a dedicated work group for the governance topic. Let me know if you want more information.
