FINOS Reference FOSS Policy for Financial Services Institutions

Overview

This is a template for a comprehensive free and open source software (FOSS) policy for a financial services institution, including sample provisions governing the acquisition and use of FOSS, and contribution to FOSS projects.

The policy is available in Asciidoc format for easier changes and collaboration.

Disclaimer

This Reference FOSS Policy is offered only as a reference, not as a complete policy or as legal advice. While this policy has been drafted to be generally applicable, it does not define every implementation detail. Every company's policy should be customized to its particular needs, policy and technical environments, and risk tolerance.

Installing

The template source document is written in AsciiDoc, a powerful but still lightweight markup language. Think of it as a super-set of markdown with minor syntactic differences.

A popular IDE is AsciidocFX, although most code editors support the format.

Asciidoc toolchain

There are many to choose from, but we suggest the Ruby gem asciidoctor.

To install on a mac, using homebrew:

$ brew install asciidoctor

Pandoc

To support many output formats, including Word documents, you may use Pandoc, a universal document converter.

To install on a mac, using homebrew:

$ brew install pandoc

Using

To output this document in Word format:

$ asciidoctor -b docbook5 FINOS-reference-FOSS-policy.adoc | pandoc -s -f docbook -t docx -o your-filename.docx

Many other outputs are available via pandoc.

To output in HTML (the default):

$ asciidoctor FINOS-reference-FOSS-policy.adoc

Many styling options exist in this rich toolchain, including CSS.
