5 November 2020 Standard for Public Code community call
Update from the Foundation
- Version 0.2.0 of the Standard for Public Code was released!
- We have made an introduction video to the Standard for Public Code.
- We are still working on the question of translations of the Standard for Public Code, pursuing the path of official translations, but have nothing new to report.
During the call, we discussed why implementing the Standard for Public Code can sometimes be challenging. We covered several different aspects relating to governance (i.e., who decides to comply with the Standard?), language (i.e., are the decision makers comfortable with adopting a standard only described in English?) and commitment (i.e., what does it mean for the organization to commit to comply with the Standard?).
No direct solutions were discovered during the call, but being aware of them could lead to the questions being addressed earlier and more appropriately.
Special thanks to Charlotte Heikendorf for taking the time to write about our new Standard for Public Code release in English and in the Danish OS2 codebase website.
