Hello all,

I don't know if this topic has been discussed before or if I missed if
its aready there. But before a few weeks I had to explain to my
customer "what actually open source is". I have started to create some
slides myself, after I found nothing on the sites. Then I was
aware of:


which is pretty good for explaining open source.
However, my customer was doing stuff mostly in Java and so ASF
projects were used. He was esspecially interested in the ASF licensing
model, in "what people are working there" and in "what actually is the
ASF". I have done some slides, but I think this could be done better
if we would develop some official resources together.

Of course some might say, that people who are not connected to the ASF
could use this official ASF slides. But they will talk about the same
things, just without ASF slides. And hopefully good slides help also
to clean up with some misunderstandings. Additionally we can make sure
that things, which are important to the ASF, like meritocracy are
pointed out in a good way and not only with one sentence between
coffee and cookie.

That being said, I would love to have the chance to take some official
slides when I get to my customer next time. Is there anybody who feels
the same?

Best regards,
