Subject: [OpenChain] Open Source Policies


Dear all


One thing that has come up more than once as organizations run through the OpenChain Conformance is the concept of “where can we find examples of an Open Source policy for an organization of X size?”


So… I am putting out a call for knowledge. Does anyone have generic policies that they would consider donating or is there interest in creating such generic policies as part of our curriculum?
