TODO Guides Contributing Guidelines

These Open Source Guides are developed by the TODO Group in collaboration with The Linux Foundation and the larger open source community. They collect best practices from the leading organizations engaged in open source development and aim to help your organization successfully implement and run an open- source program office. We expect these guides to be living documents that evolve via community contributions.
