Notice to Working Groups: renaming "iojs" org to "nodejs", joining the Node Foundation #1705
In case you haven't been following; as of yesterday's io.js TC meeting, io.js will be joining the Node Foundation and the GitHub org will be renamed to "nodejs", this is how the vote was worded:
The io.js TC agrees to:
The exact timing is still being worked on by @mikeal but it could be as soon as tomorrow.
The impact on Working Groups is that they will also be moved in to the "nodejs" org and become part of the Foundation. However, since the Working Groups are autonomous they have the ability to relocate and detach from the Foundation and that is their right. If there are concerns within your Working Group(s) about this move, please discuss it and come to a decision according to the governance procedures you have set up.
In terms of the practical outworking, this is what I would expect to happen after the move:
Many questions that people have about how the Foundation works can be answered in here: https://github.com/jasnell/dev-policy
This looks good. Thank you @rvagg. There are plenty of logistics to figure out so once we've identified everything we'll make sure it gets posted. One item of note, the dev-policy and convergence repos that currently sit in my personal github account will be transferred to the nodejs org once the rename happens. Also, we still need to get the LTS WG discussions underway.
