We’ve Updated the OpenChain Project Website

NEW YORK, United States, November 3, 2017 — As the OpenChain Project has grown, we’ve worked to create more resources for our community. To that end, we’ve updated our website, with updates to pages including News [1], Conformance [2], Translations [3] and Press [4].

“The OpenChain Project is continually seeking to improve how we communicate our work with all interested parties,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “This revision of our website is a stepping stone to help support our outreach activities in 2018. I am looking forward to working with our community in building out this critical part of our project infrastructure.”

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.
