Updates To OpenNTF Website Content
Today we pushed up
some changes to the OpenNTF website. The previous area "IP and Legal"
has been split down into "IP" and "Legal". The Legal
area covers legalistic documents for aspects such as our bylaws, IP policy,
process and how to apply it, you should look instead at the IP area. A
lot of the content here has been restructured or slightly reworded to better
explain why we do it, why you want us to do it, and do make it less daunting
to implement. It may seem scary if you've not done it before, but in practice
it's very straightforward and our IP Manager Jesse Gallagher will help
you through any typically minor amendments, if they are needed.
updated all links within the site, but if you spot any or have ideas for
any improvements, please let us know either on the OpenNTF Slack chat or
posting to our @OpenNTF Twitter account.
