Technical Aspects Workstream Update

  1. 1. All code funded by the DPLA will be free and open source. All code will be posted to public repositories with version control; regular releases will be issued; the DPLA will accept patches. The DPLA will try to use existing services and code where possible. Free and open source software is preferred, and the DPLA will move toward a completely free tool chain. Code and services will not accept any intellectual property (such as patents) that is not licensed royalty-free on a non-discriminatory basis to all users. As far as possible, the DPLA platform will be open and accessible for others to fork/host/replicate with no discrimination based on use or field of endeavor. In order to facilitate and maximize interoperability, the DPLA platform will support open standards, including Linked Open Data.
