I think Manifesto is an appropriate word for what we want this document to be, considering the Merriam-Webster definition of a Manifesto as “a written statement declaring publicly the intentions, motives, or views of its issuer”:
A manifesto is a statement in which someone makes his or her intentions or views easy for people to ascertain.

This is perfect, waiting for Pia’s feedback.
I’m missing security in this list.
Principles of Open Source Institutional Design
Yeah, I saw that. It got me thinking, Sustain, CHAOSS, and SFOSC should really team up and eliminate any/all redundancies. For example #community:sfosc uses our forum instead of setting up another, Sustain uses their principles instead of ours, etc.
In fact, I’m NOT going to archive it. In order to finish it, it needed a manifesto so what better place to host it?
