Open Source Policy

From its inception as iPlant, CyVerse has committed to releasing all code we produce with an open source software license. This commitment is enshrined in CyVerse's cooperative agreement with the National Science Foundation.

Unless otherwise noted, CyVerse code is released using this standard BSD license, which is an Open Source Initiative-approved license. Exceptions are noted in code repository LICENSE files.

CyVerse uses GitHub as the repository for our open source code: GitHub for iPlant Collaborative Open Source. Instructions for installation, dependencies, and use for each file are included in the README file for each item, or if complicated, in a separate INSTALL file. Additionally, CyVerse gives special thanks to JetBrains for access to quality developer tools provided through their Open Source Support program. For questions, please email opensource@cyverse.org.
