Organizational Collaboration Discussion

The discussion focused on the successful experiences with open source projects that the various attendees had.  The Hydra project and several aspects of it were described: it was very successful in a short (two-year) time span with no grant.  The primary stakeholders had decided that to succeed they would need to focus on compromise, yet each party would still need to see proper value for their time and effort. After the initial successful push more formal governance structures were implemented to set further priorities.

Other factors discussed were: 

Copyright and Licensing Discussion
