Continuing the discussion from How we accept new OFN "partners"?
@serenity and I drafted a first version of the community agreement we could all sign to commit with one another and agree on our shared responsibility of the Open Food Network Commons.
I am still not sure, despite the discussion we had at the last community hangout, whether we should have a document only signed by partners (who share the use of the brand, and deploy local chapters of the OFN as Commons for the local communities) or if the document should be potentially signed by hub managers using the OFN and committed to the OFN project, service providers making money using the Commons (like white label users), etc.
I didn’t yet narrow down the perimeter of the document to only partners, so before moving forward I just wanted to share the first draft with you all so that you can have a more precise reading and share feedbacks.
A community agreement for me is a document explaining the responsibilities and rights of every group within the community, so that makes sens having one single document that anyone in the community can sign. But the document is much more about the commitment of the partners (which by definition are probably more committed that other members of the community, so maybe that’s normal! We don’t really ask a huge commitment to contributors…) so I’m not sure how to handle that… do you think a committed user could be willing to sign such a document?
Please comment directly on the document (use suggesting mode and comments) and let’s iterate on this first draft!
