At the heart of Metagov is projects. Projects include software or research developed by members of Metagov and are conducted by both formal and informal working groups. The following tables provide and overview of current projects being incubated in Metagov.
Formal working groups are groups that are supported by Metagov in the form of publication on the Metagov website, use of Metagov’s legal and financial infrastructure, and additional opportunities for cross working group coordination.
Discussions and meetings for all projects conducted by formal working groups are open to the community and clearly signposted in the relevant community discussion forums.
Community members are encouraged to join these meetings as observers. Community members will be given an opportunity to introduce themselves at the beginning of a meeting. This can be a good opportunity to express any interest you may have in participating or contributing to a project.
Additional paths to participation are detailed in the table below.
Informal working groups are groups of people from the community that are working on projects without formal support from Metagov. They are usually the first step towards becoming a formal working group and are initiated in the community discussion forums. The process of transitioning from an informal working group to a formal working group is outlined in the working group governance proposal document.
These are working groups and projects that have been completed and are no longer seeking participants.
