F2 is an open and free framework, with transparency and collaboration as its guiding principles.
The F2 initiative is governed by an Advisory Board, and we publish the F2 guidelines, meeting minutes, key decisions and code on this website and other media, including GitHub.
Critical to growth of F2 is usage and adoption, as well as contribution to the initiative. Our favorite form of contribution is code, though we also welcome ideas, creative use cases, and other contributions.
If you're interested in getting involved, please take a look at our contribution guidelines for ideas.
The F2 initiative is governed by the Project Guidelines set forth below. The Guidelines cover Advisory Board membership, Voting, Contributions, Working Practices, and Policies & Licensing.
F2 is run by Advisory Board comprised of 15 member firms. The Advisory Board meets quarterly, and provides guidance on the overall direction and roadmap for F2.
Our 5-member Technical Steering Committee oversees Github administration, code maintenance and overall technical direction.
