IC Collaborative Tools Charter

From IdCommons


The purpose of this Working Group is to discuss, propose, manage, and maintain the online collaborative tools used by Identity Commons.


We strongly emphasize interoperability and dogfooding. We want our tools to mirror the work done by the other Identity Commons Working Groups and the larger identity community.

In order to further progress in tool interoperability, we will only use Open Source tools for our work. Any modifications we make to Open Source tools will also be Open Source.

Requirements of Participation and How to Join

To join, add yourself to the list of participants below and subscribe to the community@idcommons.net list. (Since our work is closely intertwined with that of IC as a whole, we will try to avoid setting up a separate mailing list just for this working group.)

Licenses and/or Restrictions on Usage of Work Product

Any work produced by this group for usage by Identity Commons must fall under an OSI-certified Open Source license.
