To facilitate an open ecosystem, OpenDaylight was structured with an open source license, open design, development and contribution model and finally, an, appropriate, open governance model.  The project is a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project and implements many open source best practices familiar to other leading projects. Further, any individual, company or organization can engage directly and immediately to begin shaping the future of the project.

OpenDaylight is open to anyone. Anyone can develop and contribute code, get elected to the Technical Steering Committee, get voted onto the Board, or help steer the project forward in any number of ways.

  1. Developers who are elected to the Technical Steering Committee or who participate as project leaders will provide leadership regarding the technical direction of OpenDaylight.
  2. A Board of Directors will manage business leadership for OpenDaylight including governance, marketing and operational decisions.
