      Organisation of the Climsoft Project

      Climsoft is an Open-Source Community project. Development, maintenance and support is mainly provided by the NMHSs of Developing Countries who are also its principal users. Contributions from the NMHSs and others are warmly welcomed.

      Climsoft relies on a supportive community of users, contributors and developers.

      Roles

      Roles in the Climsoft Project are operated as meritocracies -- the more you contribute, and the higher the quality of your contribution, the more you are encouraged to do. However with this comes increased responsibility.

      The Climsoft community is expected to encourage and assist all its members to contribute to the effective development and use of Climsoft to the greatest extent possible.
