Continuing the discussion from OFN Community Pledge - v1.0 - 1 June 2017:
To get the Pledge completed and the sign-on process started, the community agreed to an ambiguous placeholder on the topic of attribution (quoted below) with detail to be discussed further and agreed here.
Associates and Service Providers have additional responsibilities to contribute value back to the Commons, as per Item 6. In addition to licensing requirements, Associates providing a white-label OFN service are expected to ensure a reasonable public attribution of the contribution of the Open Food Network Commons.
So now we need to work out what is ‘reasonable attribution’ on a white-label instance?
Some (adapted) possibilities suggested by@CynthiaReynolds were:
what would we expect Associates (white-label instances) to clearly state/link on their websites?
- “Powered by Open Food Network”
- “An Associate of the Open Food Network” / “An Open Food Network Associate”
####Where should it appear?
- front page
- about us
- all pages served by OFN code
- ?? etc
