Abstract: This article explores the intersection between open source and standards. The OpenChain Project submitted a specification to the ISO/ IEC JTC1 PAS Transposition Process in early 2020 for review. The methodology applied and the lessons learned are explained along with observations of the implications for projects moving forward.

As always, the article is freely available (local copy).
