OpenChain @ Wikipedia

The OpenChain Project is officially featured on Wikipedia in three languages:

  1. English
  2. French
  3. German

Example of the text in English:

ISO/IEC 5230 (known as OpenChain) is an international standard on the key requirements for a high-quality open source license compliance program. The standard was published jointly by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in late 2020. The standard is based on the Linux Foundation OpenChain Specification 2.1. It focuses on software supply chains, easier procurement and license compliance. Organizations that meet the requirements of the standard can self-certify to ISO/IEC 17021, from an accredited certification body or after successfully completing an audit.

We would love your help in reviewing and improving this new resource to help spread understanding of our standard for open source license compliance, and expanding our presence over time to include the OpenChain Security Assurance Specification. You can do so through the normal Wikipedia editing process. Here is an example for the English page.

Huge thanks to Marc-Etienne Vargenau at Nokia for leading this process. He put a lot of effort into making this happen, and is due great credit for helping to improve the supply chain through easily available educational material.
