City of Chattanooga's Open Data Policy
The open data policy and specification language will be taken from Github on April 17th 2014 to be crafted into the final language needed for the policy. Once the final language is complete and the policy is enacted, the policy and specification will be placed back on Github as well as on the City's website at www.chattanooga.gov and open data portal to be hosted at data.chattanooga.gov.
This posting of the proposed open data policy and specification is an opportunity to garner greater input and feedback before the final version of the open data policy and specification go into effect.
There should be certain expectations about the ability to change verbatim whatever your suggestion or input may be. Given that the policy and specfication must go through the Mayor's office, and other relevant and/or oversight entities such as the Department Information Technology and the City Attorney's office, some suggestions may be interpreted or translated to match required legal terms and definitions.
The issues queue will be the best way to give us feedback and input, and you should expect a prompt response when submitting issues. Please submit one issue per issue request. This will help to make sure we address each and every issue presented.
If you have a proposed fix in mind, go ahead and submit a pull request with your idea.
