I have created the article, but it has been moved to the Draft area:


We need to do some improvement (adding references) before it is published.

I will do my best to have it approved.

Hi Stefan


I think it would be super useful, especially because the OpenChain Project is now producing two standards.


Um… team everyone. How about we edit via this email thread?

Hi all,


it seems as the German Wikipedia has a different treatment of the terms of “OpenChain” and “ISO/IEC 5230”.




The German Wikipedia will forward you to the “ISO/IEC 5230” page when searching for “OpenChain”…

…in the English, French, Spanish and Italiian Wikipedia, it’s just the other way round.


So there actually is information on the Wikipedia pages – but under different headlines.


Would it be an idea to create two separate articles for “OpenChain” and “ISO/IEC 5230”?

At least it might be good to have a uniform treatment of the search terms in the different language versions…

Betreff: [openchain] OpenChain article in Wikipedia




There is an article about OpenChain in the German Wikipedia:

but in no other language.


I consider it would be good to have an article at least in English.


What do you think?
