Re: The Eclipse Foundation Announces It Has Achieved OpenChain ISO 5230 Conformance


Hi Sebastian!

Eclipse are quite a special case, being the first large development-orientated NGO to adjust their overarching processes to match ISO/IEC 5230 requirements. As you said, it helps to foster an environment where other similar organizations can be inspired to do the same.

BRUSSELS – October 19, 2021 – The Eclipse Foundation AISBL, a global
community fostering a mature, scalable, and business-friendly
environment for software collaboration and innovation, has announced
that it is the first open source software foundation to confirm that
its open source development and license management processes are
OpenChain ISO 5230 conformant.

It's particularly interesting to me to see open source compliance with
the OpenChain specification from a project-centred consortium. From what
I can tell, the Eclipse Foundation are the second non-profit to announce
a OpenChain conformance programme, aren't they? Indeed, they might serve
as inspiration for other non-profits to start such programmes! :)
