Subject: [chairs] Announcing support for use of Git/GitHub public repositories for TC work
Date: Fri, 5 Aug 2016 17:14:44 -0400 (EDT)
From: Robin Cover <robin@oasis-open.org>
To: OASIS Chairs List <chairs@lists.oasis-open.org>

In response to a growing number of member requests, OASIS Staff is now providing 
support for use of GitHub public repositories by TCs that need dedicated version 
control.  Use of Git/GitHub will be supported in addition to, or in place of, a 
TC's Subversion (SVN) repository.

These GitHub repositories for TC work will be configured using the GitHub 
default (simple) setup options that enable GitHub issues and the GitHub Wiki.

The new offering is distinct from OASIS Open Repositories [5], which also use 
Git/GitHub, but are governed by open source licensing and separate contribution 
rules.  The GitHub repositories for TC Members' chartered work are governed by 
the familiar OASIS policies which govern use of other TC collaboration tools, 
including a TC Wiki, a TC Subversion repository, a TC JIRA Issues Tracker, and a 
TC Kavi document repository  (OASIS IPR Policy, TC Process etc.)

References are provided below for the online request form and related 

Staff hereby extends a note of appreciation to the TAB, OASIS Board, and several 
TC Chairs who provided encouragement and feedback on rollout of this additional 
collaboration tool.

Please send comments or questions to Robin Cover and Chet Ensign, via email at: 
robin@oasis-open.org (and) chet.ensign@oasis-open.org
