Criteria for projects

A project can be considered to be under the umbrella if it meets the following criteria:

  • The project must fit within the objectives of the free culture movement, i.e., it must support the creation of freely licensed cultural works, or the liberation of existing proprietary content.
  • It is possible for new contributors to join development (if applicable) and content creation (if applicable)
  • The project has a clear policy to not tolerate abuse, harassment, trolling, or other abusive behavior (an example is the Contributor Covenant)
  • The project maintainers agree to provide updates on significant milestones for the newsletter. These updates are collaboratively edited prior to publication.

Projects may utilize the following shared resources, as appropriate:

If maintainers have need for more resources not currently provided, see the shared resources page for information on how to get access to the server and become a maintainer for new services (which need to have potential use beyond the project they're set up for).
