Re: New OpenChain Public Policy Work Group


Greetings all!

I would like to announce the schedule for our first public policy work group meeting.

We will meet at 08:00 UTC (09:00 CET) on Monday the 12th of December. Calendar invite attached.

The agenda for our first meeting will be:

(1) Introductions
(2) An overview of open source policy concerns in Europe and Asia
(3) Open discussion on next steps

Our second meeting will be scheduled around one month later at a timezone suitable for our colleagues in North America, and will be designed to capture their policy concerns as we head into 2023.

The OpenChain Project has a mission to build trust in the supply chain and a focus on issues related to open source licensing, security and related topics. We maintain an ISO/IEC process standard for open source license compliance, a de facto process standard for Security Assurance, and we have a huge library of reference and training material.

To ensure that people working in the sphere of public policy can access our community knowledge (and to ensure our community can access their knowledge), we are starting a Public Policy Work Group. We will meet every few months via Zoom to discuss developments in overarching open source policy around the world.

Everyone is invited to be part of this and to contribute their experience. Our goal is to keep everyone informed of key developments, provide a space to discuss best practices, and – ultimately – to help further our mission to make a trusted open source supply chain that spans the world.
