The OpenJS Foundation is comprised of many open source project communities which operate independently, but also collaborate together on the Cross Project Council (CPC). Each project maintains their own communication channels, as does the OpenJS Foundation and the CPC.

GitHub

We maintain the OpenJS Foundation organization on Github to manage top-level community collaborative processes.  This organization is currently used to collaborate on activities that transcend individual projects.

cross-project-council

The CPC operates openly and transparently, conducting discussions and documenting decisions in the openjs-foundation/cross-project-council repo.

Anyone may join CPC meetings and participate in the work of the CPC as an observer.

standards

The OpenJS Foundation Standards Working Group helps coordinate and document standards activities among hosted projects, working in the openjs-foundation/standards repo.

Calendars and meetings

The OpenJS Foundation maintains a calendar (iCal) (Add to Google Calendar) for governance and working group meetings.  Meetings on this calendar are open for anyone to join.

Slack

The OpenJS Foundation maintains the OpenJS Foundation Slack Workspace. You can receive an invitation to join the OpenJS Foundation workspace through CommunityInviter.

Once you join the OpenJS Foundation Slack Workspace, you can participate in any of the public channels.  If you are new to Slack, you can view a full list of available channels by clicking the “Channels” link on the left.

If you are in an OpenJS Foundation project and don’t see a channel for your project, reach out to operations@openjsf.org and we’ll create one for you!

Mailing lists

The main OpenJS Foundation mailing lists are hosted on https://lists.openjsf.org. The primary public mailing lists are:

  • Announce – A low-traffic, moderated list for various OpenJS Foundation updates.
  • Projects – A low-traffic list for hosted project updates and discussion.

While many of our projects have their own existing mailing list infrastructure, the OpenJS Foundation can also host project mailing lists at https://lists.openjsf.org.  Please reach out to operations@openjsf.org for more information.

OpenJS Foundation Member Resources

 

Any employee of an OpenJS Foundation member may request access to a number of additional mailing lists and committees.
