Re: Curriculum next steps

Shane Martin Coughlan <shane@...>

Hi Arnold, thank you very much for your contribution!

All, the various slides and handout materials are now uploaded here:

The current goal is to place the core content from the various slides into the 'OpenChain-Curriculum-Core-Open-Source-Compliance-SLIDES/pptx’ document. Everyone should be able to open and edit files without signing in.

Later we will circle back to the two handout files to create our OpenChain handout.

Dear Shane, all,

Could you please add me to the list too? The calls are at a slightly difficult time (2am CET) but I'd still like to contribute where I can.

I have seen some very high quality materials already. I'd like to attach one of our internal documents that doesn't have too much overlap with the previous materials. This document tries to catch most of the compliance obligations at a high level in a few pages but without explaining any background, so it isn't overwhelming from its size, but it aims to whet the appetite for the background materials.

Hi Dave

Thanks for confirming!

The list of people who have explicitly stepped forward to participate in building out the curriculum so far is:
Dave Marr
Jilayne Lovejoy
Kate Stewart
Ramesh Jain
Shane Coughlan
Tom Arcidiacono
If anyone else is interested in contributing just message me or step into our calls and drafting at any point.

All, the donated slides from Dave (Qualcomm) and Ibrahim (Samsung) have been uploaded to OneDrive and can be edited by anyone without any log-in via this URL:!801&authkey=!AALECDkajmrhNWw&ithint=folder%2c

There are three files:
(1) Dave’s slides
(2) Ibrahim’s slide
(3) A placeholder document for the OpenChain Curriculum Core Open Source Compliance slides

As per our last call, the Curriculum Work Team aims to:
(A) Review (1) and (2) to remove any corporate branding or extra slides
(B) Combine them into (3)
(C) Before working on reducing the slide count to result in a presentation that takes less than an hour.

We are going to aim to get the first rough cut ready in time for our next call in the third week of June. The end result should support the goals outlined here:
In particular, we want to help support Section 1.2, the 'Mandatory FOSS training’ requirements. Ideally our slides would help people get started in this area.

The process is simple. Just open the link, click a file, and select “Edit in Browser” to get started. I am personally going to get started on (A) later this week and would appreciate help to trim any remaining corporate branding or slides which are unnecessary.

Of course we are still accepting submissions of additional material so just reach out if you want to donate under CC-0.



NOTE #1: Why OneDrive and PowerPoint Online? The original slides were in PowerPoint format. A search for online systems with easy import and collaborative editing of these documents resulted in a shortlist of Google Slides or PowerPoint Online. PowerPoint Online appears to work in China while Google services are more challenging to access. If anyone strongly wants us to use another system I am happy to discuss that too.

NOTE #2: Why a public link that anyone can access? Because we want to encourage everyone to step in and lend a hand. Our goal, as per the minutes from the last call, is to make a simple, clear set of slides to support Open Source compliance in the context of OpenChain, and to help “on-board” people into both compliance best practice and deployment of OpenChain.

Subject: [OpenChain] Curriculum next steps

Dear OpenChain project members

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our last call and to many others who expressed interest in contributing to our curriculum work team.

The specific proposals to launch the work team were:
(1) We provide high level process management slides that can be adopted and expanded by any company seeking to undertake Open Source compliance;
(2) We will create the first iteration of these slides in a three month (3 call) window, with most of the actual work happening offline;
(3) We re-use existing material that is available (or can be made available) under a CC-0 license;
(4) We keep things simple to make adoption, translation and understand as straightforward as possible.

These proposals were accepted by the curriculum work team members present.

What this means for the team is:
(1) An initial version of the slides going online for editing next week;
(2) The team working on the slides for the next month to prepare the first draft;
(3) Review of the slides will take place on our second call to assess status and where we need to focus energy;
(4) The subsequent month will apply focus to these points before resulting in our first deliverable for consideration in the third call.

I will send an email next week with details of how we will collaborate online.
