OSE Europe

Here we describe the Governance of OSE Europe.

OSE Europe is an open, dynamic, self-organizing group of people implementing the OSE Europe Mission: The creation of an open society, where everybody's needs are met, and where everybody has access to information, material productivity, and just governance systems - such that human creativity is unleashed, for all people.

  • Open - everyone is free to join and leave.
  • Dynamic - OSE Europe is not a fixed group of people. It is ever changing and people participate there where they want and can do their best.
  • Self-organizing - everyone share about themselves (who they are, what they do, what they want to do, how they want to participate) and can connect with everyone or a group of people. Everyone shares valuable information to the others.

As we grow we will describe how exactly we govern this open and live process. We will answer the questions:

  • How do we implement Open Access?
    • Is the source code available to all developers, at the same time?
    • What open source licenses we use?
    • How do we support the developers? Do they have open access to the mailing list, bug-tracking, developer documentation and other tools?
    • Is the Roadmap publicly available?
    • Is the decision-making transparent? Is the whole process described publicly and are the meeting minutes open to everyone?
  • How do we implement Open Collaborative Development?
    • Are the requirements and the process to become a contributor transparent?
    • Is the contributions and acceptance process transparent?
    • Is it transparent who made the contribution?
    • Is it transparent who are the contributors to a project?
  • Derivatives
    • Is there any control how derivatives can be used, shared etc?
