Template: ERC Checklist

From LibrePlanet
Jump to: navigation, search

This is the standard GNU Ethical Repository Criteria Evaluations (ERC) checklist template for repository evaluations. It should instantiated at the beginning of the community evaluation phase, for each interesting repository host.

To use this template:

  • Create a new wiki page, reflecting the name of the host.
  • Add the framed text below as the body of the new page.
  • The label of each criteria in the rendered checklist table, will be a hyper-link to the relevant section of the ERC.
  • The 'TODO' place-holder or later, the evaluation notes, will be shown beneath each criteria in the rendered checklist table.

To populate this template:

  • Each line beginning with a pipe character ('|'), corresponds to one of the evaluation criteria.
  • The 'TODO' place-holder, following the equals character ('=') on each such line, may be replaced with arbitrary notes. Newlines are acceptable; but avoid using the pipe '|' character.
  • There must be some text following the equals character ('=') on each such line, until that criteria passes.
  • Any text following an equals character ('=') on any such line, indicates a pending (or failing) state for that criteria (status indicator: ☐ will be shown).
  • As each criteria passes review, delete all text following the equals character ('=') on the corresponding line (status indicator: ☑ will be shown).

The rendered checklist page will resemble the table below, with boxes beside each pending criteria, and check-marks beside each passing criteria.
