Openverse Decision-Making Process#

This process is loosely based on the Sociocratic “consent decision-making” model, but is heavily adapted for an asynchronous context. The purpose of this process is to help contributors to the Openverse project make expedient decisions. That is, decisions that are both “good enough for now” and also made quickly. In many ways, this process is a refinement on what was already being practised, but with clearer expectations about time and feedback expression.
