OpenChain Adds Social Network Appointments

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, July 10, 2017 — The OpenChain Project today added the ability to book appointments to talk about the project, the specification it produces or to get help with completing our self-certification questionnaire.

“OpenChain is a project that welcomes every company big or small from anywhere in the world,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Program Manager. “Making it easy to talk about the project or to get help with joining our community is vital. Adding the ability to book appointments with OpenChain experts via social networks is small step to support this. Just go to our Facebook page and click the “Request Time” button to get started.”

The OpenChain Project identifies key recommended processes for effective open source management. The project builds trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent. The OpenChain Specification defines a core set of requirements every quality compliance program must satisfy. The OpenChain Curriculum provides the educational foundation for open source processes and solutions, whilst meeting a key requirement of the OpenChain Specification. OpenChain Conformance allows organizations to display their adherence to these requirements. The result is that open source license compliance becomes more predictable, understandable and efficient for participants of the software supply chain.

More information is available from the OpenChain Project website at Companies of all sizes are invited to review the OpenChain Project, to use the free Online Self-Certification, and to support building a web of trust for open source compliance across the global supply chain.
