OASIS TC Open Repositories: Overview

An OASIS TC Open Repository is a public GitHub repository supporting the activities of an associated OASIS Technical Committee. TC Open Repository contents are created through public contributions under a designated open source license, and community participants establish development priorities for assets maintained in the repository.

As documented in the resources cited below, any qualifying OASIS Technical Committee (a TC using the Non-Assertion, RF on Limited Terms, or RF on RAND IPR Mode) may request the creation of one or more TC Open Repositories to enable development of additional material — to supplement or support its standards work. TC Open Repositories are set up as GitHub projects under the GitHub organization "oasis-open" at https://github.com/oasis-open/.

OASIS TC Open Repositories use the familiar fork-and-pull collaboration model which allows anyone, whether an OASIS/TC member or not, to submit a pull request. All contributions to a TC Open Repository are governed by a written purpose statement for the project, a designated open source license, a policy document (distinct from OASIS TC Process and IPR policies), and by Contributor License Agreements submitted by contributors.

Note: As of 2017, OASIS supported two separate Organizations for public GitHub repositories, as described in detail elsewhere:
