Project Self-Asssessment

Note: We have recently created several new tools that supercede the one published here. Please watch this space for updates soon.

One of the benefits of participating in the DIAL Open Source Center is to bring a higher level of maturity and impact to your T4D open source project. This self-assessment is designed to start your thinking process about what you may be doing well currently, and potential areas to focus on.

Participation in the OSC can help you with some or all of these areas! You need not feel guilty about not having some or many areas “under control”. And some may not be relevant to your project.

Once you’ve gone through this self-assessment exercise with your fellow project maintainers (if any), your next step is to prepare for the OSC Membership Proposal process.
