One of the key documents in the OpenChain ecosystem – and the broader world of open source license compliance – is our policy template. This is designed to help organizations quickly, effectively create open source policies for their teams.
The policy template was originally created by Andrew Katz at Moorcrofts in the United Kingdom. It has since been explored and used by open source stakeholders around the world. Recently, the OpenChain China Work Group began to explore localization, and thanks to the hard work of Chloe Zhong from Honor we now have a complete document in Simplified Chinese to share with the world.
The policy template is a spreadsheet with different tabs to help you formulate a policy that is concise but effective. It can be used by people new to or experienced in open source, and provides plenty of support to assist with your decisions.
