IEEE SA OPEN
COMMUNITY

Please join the IEEE SA Open Source Committee and the Open Source Advisory Groups.

IEEE SA Open Source Committee

(OSCom)

Purpose

IEEE SA Open Source Committee (OSCom) is authorized by the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE SA) Board of Governors (BOG) to provide guidance, oversight, and life-cycle management support for IEEE Open Source Projects. OSCom operates in an open, transparent, and community-driven fashion in cooperation with IEEE SA and IEEE SA OPEN staff, who establish detailed policies and procedures for operations and maintenance of the IEEE Open Source Platform and IEEE Open Source Projects.

OSCom is intended to support the IEEE SA OPEN Platform and IEEE Open Source Projects, as well as to provide governance. Governance functions include approving the use of the IEEE SA OPEN Platform for projects that wish to have an IEEE imprimatur (and for all projects that are incorporated into IEEE Standards), and reviewing and approving the Maintainers Manual, terms of use, and other policies and procedures. Support functions include advising the IEEE SA OPEN Staff, supporting the IEEE SA OPEN offerings and coordinating with the IEEE Technical Advisory Board (TAB).

Policies, Procedures, and Guides

Policies and procedures are set forth in the OSCom Operations Manual and the IEEE SA Open Maintainers Manual.

Meetings

OSCom meetings are announced and minutes are recorded in the OSCom GitLab Group.

Communication

OSCom maintains a Mattermost channel. Anyone is welcome to subscribe. If you have a question about OSCom, please send email to opensource@ieee.org.

Obtaining Approvals

If OSCom approval is required, an official request can be made on GitLab.

OPEN SOURCE COMMUNITY ADVISORY GROUP

(OSCAG)

Charter

The Open Source Community Advisory Group (OSCAG) defines and promotes best practices for participation in open source projects, especially within the IEEE SA OPEN framework. We consult with members of communities, leaders in the broader open source world, and existing documentation, while actively involving people who are diverse in race, nationality, gender, and ability.

OPEN SOURCE MARKETING ADVISORY GROUP

We consult with members of marketing communities, leaders in the broader open source world, and existing documentation, while actively involving people who are diverse in race, nationality, gender, and ability. While the IEEE SA OPEN community supports itself through the mentorship and the assistance of our volunteers, the IEEE SA Marketing team shares their best practices with the community to act as an initial resource.
