Get Involved

How we work

  • We hold weekly meetings on Thursdays @1630 (BST) you can view our minutes here.
  • To make a proposal for a change in one of our standards, start a thread on the discussions page.
  • Once the thread has gained some momentum with comments, ideas, and inputs from the rest of the group, convert it to an issue through the option on the right-hand side menu.
  • Once the issue has sufficient material and agreement from the group on it, create a pull request linking that issue.
  • Pull requests are reviewed by the group and if there is consensus merged during our weekly calls.


Proposing a new project

  • To propose a project, we ask that you create a short project document and gather the interest of at least three people from 2 different member organizations.
  • Reach out to the chairs, who will add you to the next working group meeting agenda.
  • If the working group reaches consensus and agrees, your project will be made official and start receiving the support of the Foundation.
  • However, often it requires several conversations with the working group to evolve your project proposal to a version where everyone is comfortable.
  • Once launched, the working group will support you in executing your project and source the resources required from the Foundation and its members.
