This page hosts drafts and previous versions of Evergreen governance documents. The current authoritative documents can be found on the Governance Committee page.
Our application to join the Software Freedom Conservancy has been provisionally accepted; we are now working on the Fiscal Sponsorship Agreement to set up the formal relationship of the Evergreen project as a member of the Conservancy.
The Software Freedom Conservancy requested a finalized list of people who will sign the Fiscal Sponsorship Agreement. The Conservancy indicated that they prefer people to sign as individuals, but for those people who believe they must sign on behalf of an organization, the Conservancy would like the organization identified and the rationale for signing on behalf of an organization rather than as an individual.
As of March 3, 2011, the Rules of Governance are being maintained in AsciiDoc format in the Evergreen Community Contributions repository so that the evolution of the document(s) can be tracked. Instructions for generating PDF and HTML versions can be found in the README file in the same directory.
Previous drafts include:
"... all spending by the SFC on Wine's behalf for the last few years has been related to Wineconf. That has either been to pay for conference expenses directly (as in Reading, 2 years ago), or to help defray travel costs for Wine contributors to come to Wineconf (as happened this year)"
