Adherence to Standards

The Open Y Core Team will adhere to the same standards we set for the community for all areas of development and technologies as per the Open Y documentation.

The Open Y Core Team reserves the right to break these standards only in the following scenarios:

  • Emergency - a major defect or security risk has been discovered that requires extreme measures to resolve.
  • When the standards are broken, it is the responsibility of the Open Y Core Team to explain why the standards needed to be broken, and what the new standards will be moving forward.
  • This communication will be posted to the Open Y message board, Slack, and the documentation on GitHub will be updated to reflect the new standards.
