First Steps


The OSSV is still in the very early stages of development. To move from a concept to an actual project there are two fundamental steps which must be undertaken: (a) selection of a collaboration (and versioning) system and (b) building out of a team.

Selection of a System

The OSSV will require a robust system for contributing and editing content. What sort of system should be used? Wikimedia’s MediaWiki? GitHub? We’ve created a page to record our studies on this subject and to open up the topic for dialogue, please join us here.

Building a Team

The second task is to build out a team. This can include anyone who is able to work with others and desires to make positive contributions. It ideally should include some professionals in the field to lend credence to the undertaking.

If you are interested in participating in undertaking the OSSV or acting as a professional advisor, please contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
