\section{Workgroup name}

HUB \acrfull{STIG}


Reference the OpenPOWER Foundation \acrshort{IPR} Policy and OpenPOWER WorkGroup Process for additional term definitions.

``Provider" is an Eligible participant of the workgroup that has been elected by Full Majority Vote to provide OpenPOWER resources
to the Open Source community for the purpose of enabling, promoting, converting, porting, and testing open source on OpenPOWER.


The HUB \acrshort{STIG} is a workgroup whose purpose is to enable the process of porting to OpenPOWER,
this \acrshort{STIG} will enable the porting, conversion, and testing of open source on OpenPOWER.
This \acrshort{STIG} will provide resources for these efforts by levering Providers to enable open source to gain access to
OpenPOWER resources for the purpose of porting, converting, and maintaining open source resources to be enabled on OpenPOWER.\par

The HUB \acrshort{STIG} will create processes, documentation, code and how-to guides to assist in OpenPOWER enablement.
In addition to these documents, the HUB \acrshort{STIG} will provide resources that enable the porting, conversion and maintance
throught Providers that have resources available to assist open source in this effort.\par

The purpose of the HUB is to be a central place where a public open source project can reach out to for help.
It is up to the HUB to assist these projects in their endavour to OpenPOWER.\par


The scope of the HUB \acrshort{STIG} is the creation of a central place for OpenPOWER porting.
The \acrshort{STIG} will do this by providing documentation, code, and resources to enable the porting, converting, and maintaining
of open source on OpenPOWER.\par

The HUB \acrshort{STIG} will create documentation on how to enable open source on OpenPOWER.
It will do this in a way to enable all features, and options available on OpenPOWER.
This documentataion will be made publically available and be distributed within several open source communities.\par

In addition to the documentation, the HUB \acrshort{STIG} will work with Providers to make resources, such as but not limited to
Cloud Server Hardware
FPGA based Hardware
GPU based Hardware
Specialized hardware
Software distributions

In addition the HUB \acrshort{STIG} will be a workgroup that evangalises the adoption of OpenPOWER
through technical documentation and resource availability.\par

\section{Similar Activities}

Accelerator Workgroup : may work with to define the requirements for open tooling needed to complete the implementation of OpenPOWER
Memory Workgroup : defines the requirements for OpenPOWER Memory adoption, such as OMI
HW Architecture Workgroup : maintains the hardware architecture specifications that may be needed for new development
System Software Workgroup : owns definition, documentation, and maintenance of the firmware, Linux and other software on OpenPOWER
Development Platform Workgroup : defines the reference architecture of future OpenPower systems


Any open source project that plans to run on OpenPOWER.

\section{Work Product}

Documentation for adoption of, porting to, converting to OpenPOWER
Code, such as patches for OpenPOWER, to be pushed to the upstream project
Ensure maintaining open source enablement of OpenPOWER


Build documentation on adoption of, porting to, converting to OpenPOWER
Assist in code patching of open source to OpenPOWER
Assist in maintenance of open source on OpenPOWER
Provide resources for open source to OpenPOWER



Participation and voting right requirements are as outlined per the OpenPOWER Work Group Process.\par

A minimum of two Eligeble Participant will be required to be a Providers.
Providerss will have the responsibility to make resources available for open source to consume for the purpose of
porting, adopting, maintaining, or enhancing OpenPOWER.\par
