Subject: reference to Linux Foundation NDA program obsolete?
Date: Sun, 24 May 2020 07:33:29 +0200 (CEST)
Message-ID: <alpine.DEB.2.21.2005240722560.5201@felia> (raw)

Hi Jonathan,

while reading the process documentation, I noticed this reference to the 
Linux Foundation NDA program in Documentation/process/3.Early-stage.rst:

-->

That said, there are also cases where a company legitimately cannot
disclose its plans early in the development process.  Companies with
experienced kernel developers may choose to proceed in an open-loop manner
on the assumption that they will be able to avoid serious integration
problems later.  For companies without that sort of in-house expertise, 
the best option is often to hire an outside developer to review the plans 
undera non-disclosure agreement.  The Linux Foundation operates an NDA 
program designed to help with this sort of situation; more information can 
be found at:

    http://www.linuxfoundation.org/en/NDA_program

This kind of review is often enough to avoid serious problems later on
without requiring public disclosure of the project.

<--

The link is dead; internet search only showed some references from 
meeting minutes in 2008, but nothing more since then.

Has this LF NDA program simply been phased out?

If so, I will provide a clean-up patch to remove this historic reference.

Lukas
