The following documents were prepared by the Governance Committee that was formed at the 2010 Evergreen International Conference.
Our application to join the Software Freedom Conservancy was provisionally accepted. As of 2011-04-30, the Fiscal Sponsorship Agreement (PDF) defines the formal relationship of the Evergreen project as a member of the Conservancy.
The Fiscal Sponsorship Agreement was signed by members of the Evergreen community, called the Evergreen Oversight Board, who were part of the Governance Committee that formed at the 2010 Evergreen International Conference. One of the first requirements of the Rules of Governance is for this initial set of Evergreen Oversight Board members to define a mechanism for electing Board members in future years.

As of March 3, 2011, the Rules of Governance are being maintained in AsciiDoc format in the Evergreen Community Contributions repository so that the evolution of the document(s) can be tracked. Instructions for generating PDF and HTML versions can be found in the README file in the same directory.
For ease-of-reading convenience, the following formats are also available. However, the official AsciiDoc version rules in the event of any discrepancies.
Drafts of previous documents, etc, can be found in the Governance Archive page.
