h1. Governance

Development of the Arvados software is currently managed by the Curoverse engineering team. Anyone (Arvados is a new project which draws ideas and code from other Curoverse open source projects). There are two committers: Tom Clegg and Ward Vandewege. Everyone is welcome to [[Download|clone the code]] and make pull requests for the commit team Tom and Ward to review.

If you intend to make a small change, feel free to send a pull request. If you would like to write a more substantial amount of code, please come talk to the development team on IRC or the mailing list before you start work. We might be able plan to help you avoid unnecessary work. Your contribution is also much more likely to be merged if your work is based on a conversation with the development team.

Curoverse is happy to
add non-Curoverse developers to the our team of committers based on their participation in the project and the quality of their work (as assessed by the existing commit team).

h2. Creation of a Foundation

As participation grows in the community, we plan to transfer the governance of the Arvados project to a foundation that is organized in a way similar to the OpenStack project. This will be a function of getting more individuals and organizations involved in the project in the coming year. We're deeply [[Mission, Philosophy and Principles|committed to open source]], so we see this project as one that is ultimately for the community by the community.
