DC-SCM2.0 CLA process change


Qian Wang
 

Hello all,


This email is intended for the DC-SCM 2.0 specification development participants.


Archna clarified the use of the two agreements (the CLA and FSA) for the work of the HWMM sub-project. The CLAs (Contributor License) are required to protect those contributing to the specification and the FSA (Final Spec) protects the users of the specification.  The following is the proper usage of the CLA and FSA -  per the other projects.

 

  • Those wishing to contribute and discuss the Specification
    • Need to sign the CLA which Archna will provide – the CLA should be familiar to most of your legal departments
    • The companies who sign the CLA can meet and contribute to the Specification
      • To move quickly on the CLA, please let me know if you plan to sign it ASAP. 
    • Issue and resolution tracking will continue to be available on the wiki.  The specification update drafts will be posted on the wiki monthly
    • The CLA is also required for the workstreams, which will be rehosted as OCP meetings to give them the proper IP framework
  • The HWMM sub-project meetings will be rescheduled to once a month to report out updates (no CLAs needed for this)
    • The HWMM will also report out at the monthly HW Mgmt Project meeting, as it currently does
  • Upon completion of the specification, the CLA signers are encouraged to sign the FSA.

 

This process change will be the topic of the May 17th meeting. The intent is to restart the meetings when a definitive number of companies have signed the CLA.  The number will be decided on May 17 - my proposal is 3. 


Thanks,

Qian

Hello all,

Thank you all for your patience as we refine this process.

 

In the May 17th HW Mgmt Module meeting, the process described was that prospective signers could assess their level of contribution and sign the CLA.


However, the OCP process for collaboration requires approval of a candidate for signature before sending the CLA to be signed.

 

The project lead(s) normally provides the approval.  Intel does not believe it should be the sole gatekeeper and a more open governance model should be used for approval.  However, I will manage the approval request process, please send the joining request to me.  To that end, a core group would approve additional members who could sign the CLA.

 

The original intent of moving the DC-SCM 2.0 work into OCP was that the original 4 companies wanted to add two more members. But wanted to do so within an IP framework. OCP provided that framework.  The proposal is to

·       Designate these 6 companies as the core group which are approved to sign the CLA.  These are: Microsoft, Google, Intel, DellEMC, HPE and IBM

The core group could be called the TSC - technical steering committee in open-source governance

·       That signed-CLAs from 3 companies is sufficient to establish the core group

·       That the core group approves additional companies to join the core group. The approval is by consensus, until other voting rules are established.

·       That the criteria include the understanding of a company's exact contribution to the DC-SCM 2.0 Spec (already available or planned).

 

Updates to the specification will be provided on the HWMM monthly calls and on the wiki.  The Tracker sheet will continue to be available for submitting opens.

 

Regards,

Qian
