OpenChain Reference Policy Template 2.0 – Final Release Candidate

By 2019-11-22November 12th, 2020News

As we head into the weekend it is the perfect time to take a moment and review one of the most important documents in our reference library. There are two primary requests in the OpenChain Project regarding reference material. One is for reference training, something we have addressed through our comprehensive curriculum slides since the project formation. The second is for templates to create open source policies for organizations of different sizes and in different markets. Thanks to the tremendous work of Andrew Katz, his team at Moorcrofts, and the team at Orcro, the OpenChain Project has been able to offer a flexible template to address this need for over a year. Our first release focused on version 1.2 of the OpenChain standard. Our second release, formally coming to market very soon (but already in draft form for many months), is designed to explicitly support version 2.0 of the OpenChain standard. This is a critical release, as OpenChain 2.0 is going into the ISO process, and we expect it to spread globally in this form for many years. Please take a moment, take a look at our final release candidate for this document, and let us know what you think.
