This talk will explore the process of building and deploying the first Linux Foundation ISO standard in fourteen years, highlighting both what has changed since we deployed Linux Standard Base, and why formal standardization is a topic that will increasingly be on your radar. The discussion will be primarily focused on OpenChain, the industry standard for open source compliance, and how collaboration with the Joint Development Foundation allowed a transformation from de facto into formal standard in a timescale that suits open source development. The lessons learned are applicable to any projects building out specifications or code that seek worldwide, sustainable adoption across multiple industries, and the presentation will include an explanation of how Linux Foundation and Joint Development Foundation are ready to support that process today.
