yt project governance

The mission of the yt project is to create tools to visualize, analyze, and explore scientific data for the natural sciences. The core package of the yt project is yt, but our organization includes a number of packages that lie within this theme.

The purpose of these pages are to formalize the governance structure of the core yt package and packages hosted within the yt project github organization. Broadly, these pages provide an overview of our values, decision-making processes, and how the project is organized. Our governance aims to embue the following principles:

  • Project openness & transparency

  • An active, welcoming environment for contribution

  • An inclusive, welcoming environment for users of all skill levels

  • Institutional neutrality
