The OSLC Communications workgroup, which dedicates itself to evangelizing the OSLC community, wrapped up their second major meeting the other day; they've posted the agenda and meeting minutes on the wiki.
Of particular interest to the OSLC community might be their working draft “manifesto” for OSLC that attempts to distill our values into something brief and memorable (with apologies to the Agile Manifesto). As of this writing, here’s what they have:
We are uncovering better ways of integrating software and making it easier for others to do the same.
Through this work we have come to value:
Open and generally available data instead of proprietary point-to-point integrations
Scenario-driven specifications instead of exhaustive standards
Public discussion and debate instead of backroom dealing
Responding to the needs of the community instead of following the agenda of a single member
The workgroup is looking for feedback from the community, so check out the current draft on the wiki and let us know what you think!
