OpenChain Welcomes Ura Design

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, July 12, 2017 — The OpenChain Project is proud to welcome Ura Design to the community of OpenChain Conformant organizations.

“Ura Design is a company that helps provide design solutions for open source projects including Mozilla and Tor,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Program Manager. “Emerging from the Open Source Design community, they have long been a pioneer in supporting ideas that can make a lasting difference. Today they have placed their support behind OpenChain for simple, pragmatic reasons.”

“We are working on GPL software which allows projects to host their branding and visual assets online and allows others to download and embed these assets in any format,” says Elio Qoshi, Founder of Ura Design. “Joining OpenChain underlines our commitment to having great governance behind the code.”

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.

Organizations of all sizes are invited to review the OpenChain Project, to complete our free Online Self-Certification Questionnaire, and to join our community of trust.
