Open Glossary of Edge Computing
The Linux Foundation's Open Glossary of Edge Computing project curates and defines terms related to the field of edge computing, collecting common and accepted definitions into an openly licensed repository. The Open Glossary project leverages a diverse community of contributors to collaborate on a shared lexicon, offering an organization- and vendor-neutral platform for advancing a common understanding of edge computing and the next generation Internet.
The Open Glossary is governed as an open source project using a transparent and meritocratic process. Anybody can make additions, clarifications and suggestions by raising a GitHub issue or editing a branch and issuing a pull request. Each issue or pull request is evaluated by the community for inclusion.
The glossary is freely licensed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license (CC-BY-SA-4.0), in order to encourage use and adoption. Code contributions to the project, such as scripts to build the crosslinks into the markdown file as well as scripts to produce a professional-looking PDF, are licensed under the Apache License, version 2.0 (Apache-2.0).
