09. I have a completed application that I want to upload to the OSADP. What do I do?

The process for uploading an application to the OSADP is documented here.  Some highlights:

  1. You must be a registered user to upload applications to the OSADP (Register here).
  2. You must have a GitHub account (sign up for a free Github account here).
  3. You must complete an Open Source Upload Request form to express intention for sharing the code base as open source on OSADP and agree to the terms and conditions of the website.
    This form requires you to supply basic information about the package for a preliminary approval review
    • Submitter's name
    • Github username
    • Organization/Company
    • Email
  1. The OSADP administrator, in conjunction with USDOT, reviews and grants approval for upload.
  2. After approval, submitter is given access to a private Github repository where they can upload their zip file. Uploaded packages must conform to the guidelines and formats that include the following basic elements:
    • Source code or assets
    • README.txt (template) gives user a brief summary of the open source package and provides other useful information
    • RELEASE-NOTES.txt (template) describes incremental differences in each release and associated instructions
    • LICENSE.txt (sample) declares the license that this open source is released under and discusses associated terms and conditions
    • ATTRIBUTION.txt (sample) acknowledges or gives credits to individuals, a group, or an organization that have contributed to the open source
