team:single-vendor

This tag communicates that a given project team is currently driven by a single organization.

This tag exists in the ‘team’ category, which as the name implies, covers information about the team itself.

Rationale

Knowing that a given project is produced by a team essentially from a single organization is a critical factor in the decision to deploy a project, as it changes the dynamics of who you trust to continue to deliver this project.

In particular, such a project could be abandoned due to the budgeting decisions of a single party. Additional steps (like engaging early on with that single party) could be taken before investing significantly on such a project.

Requirements

The tag applies to any project team where one organization represents >=90% of any of the following over the prior six months:

  • the sum of all commits merged into any of the git repositories managed by the team
  • the sum of all reviews done against patches submitted to any of the git repositories managed by the team
  • the sum of all reviews done by active core reviewers against patches submitted to any of the git repositories managed by the team
  • the union of the active members of the core review teams associated with the git repositories managed by the team

This tag is applied based on the tools/teamstats.py script. The output of this script is then reviewed by the TC to verify it matches the reality.

The application of this tag to new projects should be updated around the same time as the 6 month release. But the removal of this tag should happen shortly after it does not apply to a given project.

Based on how requirements are defined, this tag is only applicable for projects where their primary deliverables are represented by commits and reviews in git.

Deprecation

There is no deprecation period required for this tag. It can be added or removed at any time.
