Open source community
1. An individual, group, or enterprise creates software that solves a problem.
2. These creators decide they would like to invite other people to collaborate on improving that software—including people who are not part of their team or organization. They make the source code for their software accessible, and they attach an open source license that specifies the rules for modifying and sharing it with others.
Red Hat creates, catalyzes, and participates in community-powered upstream projects. We contribute code, collaborate on content, help maintain projects, provide critical infrastructure, mentor leaders, consult on licensing decisions, and sponsor events aimed at raising awareness of community-driven projects. In open source communities, we advocate for technological innovations that will benefit our customers
