NASA ESDIS Policy on Open Source Governance


Open source is about more than just putting a license on a piece of software. Every project would love to have a community of passionate individuals assisting in bug reporting and squashing, software documentation, and the development of new features; but these things don't just happen by themselves! That's why ESDIS is developing a policy to give open source software projects the best chance of success by providing guidance on how to govern the project. This governance model is the social framework that empowers the legal framework (the license) to perform its magic.
