Open Source Governance Models: From BDFL to Consensus Seeking - Myles Borins, Google

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will use the story of Node.js to discuss the positive and negative aspects of a variety of open source governance models. Prior to the fork Node.js was run using a Benevolent Dictator for Life model. After merging with io.js the project adopted a distributed consensus model for landing all changes and governance.

The project has seen a resurgence in contribution in the new model, but it is not without it's own problems. The sessions will examine the reality of these different models and lessons learned.
