Bandit Project Charter

From IdCommons


Proposed-Name-Here Working Group


A concise summary of the purpose of the working group, similar in function to the summary of Identity Commons itself -- see the PurposeAndPrinciples. Note that the purpose of the working group must be consistent with the overall purpose of Identity Commons.


Every working group 'inherits' the general principles of Identity Commons itself -- see PurposeAndPrinciples. This section should list any additional operating principles of the working group, i.e., scope limitations, how membership will be managed, how it will be governed, how Stewards Council representatives are chosen, when its work will be considered complete, etc. Note that these cannot be in conflict with the general Identity Commons principles.


How does the working group go about doing its work together?


  • a group that hosts event that it charges money for to cover costs might have a practice that 15% of money it earns in doing those events goes to general operating funds for Identity Commons.
  • A group might state that all its meeting notes must be publically published.
