The Open Mainframe Project is a resource for open source projects supporting or looking to support mainframe, as well as a home for open source projects specifically targetting the mainframe. The TAC ensures that projects targeting the mainframe have the support they need to be successful, with flexability on governance and licensing to ensure the community can operate and grow successfully. More details on hosting a project at the Open Mainframe Project is in this deck. The processes and policies for the TAC to manage incoming projects and project stages to be hosted by the Open Mainframe Project, as well as guidelines for projects, are in the process section.
In addition, the Open Mainframe Project TAC has established a working groups program for the open source on mainframe community to collaborate on topical areas that are pertainent to the community. More details on the working group program and how to establish a working group can be found here
