There are a lot of open source projects out there. They have a wide spectrum of governance models. It's a critical component to the success of a project so it's worth learning from others and consciously deciding on how governance is set up for a project. It's also a critical factor to assess projects and a subject for research.
To facilitate all this a map of the models in use is a helpful resource. This project is about collecting data about open source governance models, make it available in a machine-readable form, and provide an overview via a web page.
The project is at https://github.com/cornelius/open-source-governance, the web site is at https://cornelius.github.io/open-source-governance, and there is more details in my blog entry about Mapping Open Source Governance Models.
