I (co-)maintain a couple of .NET based open-source projects and we would possibly like to join the .NET foundation but we're not entirely sure about some details.
I went over the checklist here:
Most of this is already done or can be done. A couple of questions:
- Why the License or Assignment options?
The best for us would be to use the 'License' option I think but why is the seperate agreement needed and what are we as maintainers required to sign? We don't get this part I guess, some more info would be welcome.
We have relatively small projects mostly related to GIS and routeplanning but that doesn't mean we couldn't use the exposure and/or support. I'm guessing the answer is yes.
I already submitted one of the projects (here: https://dotnetfoundation.org/get-involved) a couple of weeks ago, OsmSharp (http://www.osmsharp.com/), but have yet to recieve a response.
