OASIS TC GitHub repositories, as described in GitHub Repositories for OASIS TC Members' Chartered Work, are governed by the OASIS TC Process, IPR Policy, and other policies, similar to TC Wikis, TC JIRA issues tracking instances, TC SVN/Subversion repositories, etc. While they make use of public GitHub repositories, these TC GitHub repositories are distinct from OASIS TC Open Repositories, which are used for development of open source licensed content.
The purpose of this GitHub repository is to develop and distribute good examples in order to share knowledge about the correct application of LegalRuleML standard.
