Intentionally account for a domain by invitation rather than assignment and request that those invited contribute when they can.

The delegator of the open domain clarifies:

  • the primary driver, key responsibilities and constraints of the open domain
  • who is invited to contribute to the open domain
  • constraints relating to the delegator’s participation in the open domain’s governance

Depending on the constraints set by the delegator, contributors may only organize and do work, or take part in governance as well.

A delegator is accountable for conducting regular reviews to support effectiveness of work and any decision making done in an open domain.
