VyOS Foundation Goals
Members, Funding, BenefitsSimple structure: community and corporate memberships.
Community member status will be available to everyone who has a track record of project activities, whether they contributed code, improved documentation, promoted VyOS, or helped other people on the forums and chats, or supported us on Patreon and BuyMeACoffee.
Community members will have voting powers and access to LTS images and private channels. Community members can also be elected into the board and the technical steering committee—those benefits are not reserved for corporate members only, and we want to make sure community interests are always represented.
Corporate membership is designed to allow companies to participate in the project decision-making process to ensure that project direction is aligned with the business goals of the members.
Our organization will be funded through a combination of donations, membership fees, and additional commercial activities (hardware certification, software certifications).
