Tools for cooperation have been improved!
Our specification has been in Github available since the beginning of the development. Yesterday we finalized the setup and now the organization URL is correct and reflects the Initiative name.
You can find the specification source from this address: https://github.com/Open-Data-Product-Initiative

Slack space for discussions
So far the community has discussed matters in email, twitter DMs, company Slacks, and even Whatsapp. The discussion has been scattered and hard to follow. To fix this and create one place for daily discussions and thought exchange we have created dedicated Slack for the Initiative.
Yeah we know, you have plenty of those spaces already, but at the moment this felt like the best option for all. We can discuss and change the communication practices in our monthly meetings and alter the setup. But for now, we'll go with the Slack.
