This overview is suitable as a starting point for business decision-makers and other non-technical parties interested in why OpenChain exists and how it delivers value.

New Material Donations

We have received donations of flowcharts, checklists and a markdown conversation of the OpenChain Specification during the last month.

New Curriculum Chair

We are delighted to announce that Alexios Zavras from Intel is the new chair of the OpenChain Curriculum Work Team. Alexios holds the position of Senior Open Source Compliance Engineer at Intel and has long been a contributor to projects in the Linux Foundation and further afield.

New Ways to Communicate

We have continued to expand the ways that people can find and interact with the OpenChain Project. This month we added appointment reservations to the OpenChain Facebook Page. Our goal is to make it possible to discover, interact with and participate in OpenChain as easily as possible.

OpenChain Internationalization

We have seen heavy activity on the internationalization front. The two stand-out pieces of news are the release of our onboarding material and our Frequently Asked Questions page in Japanese.

What’s Next?

In the next month we will announce our partner program pilot, we will continue to expand our internationalization efforts, and we will improve both the website and the format used for our newsletter. Learn more in the next newsletter or on the OpenChain mailing list:
