Subject: OASIS Open Repository: legaldocml-akomantoso

Now available to the LegalDocML TC members and everyone else:

OASIS Open Repository: legaldocml-akomantoso

Purpose: "OASIS Open Repository: Schema files, examples, exemplificative implementations and libraries, and documentation related to the LegalDocML TC and Akoma Ntoso schema"

Many thanks to Fabio Vitali, Monica Palmirani, Véronique Parisse, and Grant Vergottini for stepping up to provide leadership for this open source activity [1].  They are the initial Maintainers (others can be added), and (having direct write access to the code repository) will serve to coordinate community development plans and participation. 

Per the README:  The legaldocml-akomantoso Open Repository remains associated with the sponsor TC, but its development priorities, leadership, intellectual property terms, participation rules, and other matters of governance are separate and distinct from the OASIS TC Process and related policies.

Your participation is invited!  To make formal contributions (e.g., seeking evaluation of pull requests), all participants need to submit an Individual Contributor License Agreement (CLA).  In other respects, no CLA would be required:  an OASIS Open Repository, as with GitHub public repositories generally, also accepts public feedback from any GitHub user.  Public feedback includes opening issues, authoring and editing comments, participating in conversations, making wiki edits, creating repository stars, and making suggestions via pull requests.  Such feedback does not constitute an OASIS Open Repository contribution. However, as noted in the Guidelines: technical content intended as a substantive contribution (repository "code") to an Open Repository is subject to evaluation, and requires a signed Individual CLA.

Please let us know if you have any questions about use of the repository

[1] OASIS Open Repositories: Overview

[2] Open Repository Maintainers


Open Repository Maintainers (a role also called "committers" in some open source projects) are recognized and trusted experts who serve to implement community goals and consensus design preferences. They are selected not only by demonstration of a proven record of making technical contributions accepted by the community, but by reputation for fairness and impartiality, seeking to advance the community's agenda rather than their own. They demonstrate commitment to the success of the Open Repository's sub-projects and provide technical leadership that is broadly respected by the repository participants. Maintainers should also be skillful negotiators and mediators, capable of moving past community dissent to embrace compromises that empower and motivate all parties.

Maintainers are members of the repository's Write Access Team(s), and exercise a range of editorial responsibilities to keep the community focused upon key development goals, keep repository assets clearly identified and organized, and help keep conversations on topic. At the technical level, they have responsibility for assigning and closing issues, creating and associating milestones, creating releases, designating a default branch, creating and applying labels, initiating conversations on pull requests, merging and closing pull requests, assigning evaluation of a pull request, resolving merge conflicts, etc.
