The OpenChain Curriculum Flowcharts in Simplified Chinese

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, December 22, 2017 — OpenChain Project is delighted to announce that our reference Curriculum Flowcharts, originally contributed from the book ‘Practical GPL Compliance‘, are now available in Simplified Chinese under CC-0 licensing.

“Zhongwen Lin, a contributor to our project based in Shenzhen, has kindly supported the translation of additional material into Simplified Chinese” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “Today’s release is all about expanding the reference material available for businesses based in China. This is one small step towards greater engagement and we look forward to building many new bridges in 2018.”

The OpenChain Project identifies key recommended processes for effective open source management. The project builds trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent.

The OpenChain Specification defines a core set of requirements every quality compliance program must satisfy. The OpenChain Curriculum provides the educational foundation for open source processes and solutions, whilst meeting a key requirement of the OpenChain Specification. OpenChain Conformance allows organizations to display their adherence to these requirements.

The result is that open source license compliance becomes more predictable, understandable and efficient for participants of the software supply chain.

Organizations of all sizes are invited to review the OpenChain Project, to complete our free Online Self-Certification Questionnaire, and to join our community of trust.
