The openmod initiative needs some minimal governance so that we, as a community, can make decisions, like e.g. on this issue: Relation of the OpenEnergyPlatform (OEP) and openmod initiative.
Does anyone have a suggestion for a governance model we could adopt?
It should include at least:
- A decision-making process
- A code of conduct
It’s not clear to me that a “steering committee” is required, but other projects have one.
Some recommendations for voting systems were made in the topic linked above, but ideally we could just take over an existing system without devising one ourselves from scratch.
To officially approve the governance model, we could e.g. define the “community” as the union of the members of the mailing list and the forum. Approval of the governance model would require the consensus of the entire community.
