Collaborators are not official members of the ONF, but they are a valuable part of our ecosystem. These are companies that are committing resources and working diligently to align their activities and contributions with one or more of our projects. Collaborators contribute personnel resources (minimum of 1 FTE with demonstrable deliverables). In return, Collaborators receive help aligning their work with the ONF and they influence the direction of ONF’s efforts through open source contributions beneficial to their goals.
In addition to the companies named above, the ONF relies on and is greatly appreciative of the many companies and individuals who contribute as volunteers to our work and mission. The benefits of Collaborator status are granted to those companies who first made meaningful contributions as Volunteers, and who now have identified active engineering resources working on future contributions.
