DRAFT - UNDER REVIEW
Statement on Mission and Vision
The LF Edge Foundation has been formed to create a unified community for Open Source Edge that
- fosters cross-industry collaboration across IOT, Telecom, Enterprise and Cloud ecosystems
- enables organizations to accelerate adoption and the pace of innovation for edge computing
- seeks to facilitate harmonization across Edge projects
The vision of LF Edge is that our software & projects will enable rapid productization of Edge platforms by supplying the necessary building blocks (and/or frameworks, reference solutions) to facilitate integration and interoperability for Edge Computing across Telecom Service Providers, Cloud Providers, IOT & Enterprises.
Project Induction Process
The Technical and Board governance of LF Edge have defined a policy which describes how an open source project can formally join the LF Edge Foundation, hereinafter referred to as the "Foundation", via the Project Proposal Process. It describes the Stages a project may be admitted under and what the criteria and expectations are for a given stage, as well as the acceptance criteria for a project to move from one stage to another. It also describes the Annual Review Process through which those changes will be evaluated and made.
Project progression - movement from one stage to another - allows projects to participate at the level that is most appropriate for them given where they are in their lifecycle. Regardless of stage, all Foundation projects benefit from a deepened alignment with existing projects, and access to mentorship, support, and foundation resources.
