Resources in this category aim to help funders better support the process of  assessment, development, maintenance, adoption, and governance of open-source  technology. Funders who are interested in this category might be interested in exploring opportunities such as:

  • Making discussions about free and open-source software (FOSS) governance less dogmatic
  • Supporting technology adoption and maintenance during and post-funding stage
  • Thinking critically about how to evolve data capacities, analysis, and governance
  • Understanding the unusual needs of infrastructure projects (e.g. In the context of digital infrastructure, the second and third implementations of a new standard are not only helpful, but necessary; and people who draft standards will not necessarily experience how their work impacts actual users)
