Code goes into the ArchivesSpace application from a variety of sources. The inaugural ArchivesSpace Core Committers Group will be responsible for helping people with the process of contributing code to ArchivesSpace Github, reviewing and committing individual code contributions, and ensuring code contributions are properly licensed and follow best-practice guidelines.

The group will have monthly call-in meetings that are open for the community to call and listen in as the group handles enhancements to the core code base. The monthly call-ins will be on the second Monday of the month at 2pm EST. The next call-in meeting will be on August 14. Here is the conference call information:

Participant Passcode: 731627
US/CAN Toll Free: 1-888-354-0094
Int’l Toll: 1-303-218-2652

The core committers will also stay active in the community by welcoming new contributors and helping them get involved, monitoring and responding to issues on the ArchivesSpace mailing lists, and monitoring and analyzing relevant tickets on ArchivesSpace JIRA.

If you’d like more information about the Core Committers, or if you’d like to get involved in contributing code to ArchivesSpace, please contact Laney at laney.mcglohon@lyrasis.org.
