The OpenJS Foundation will work as a neutral organization to host and sustain projects, as well as collaboratively fund activities that benefit the ecosystem as a whole.
The OpenJS Foundation is supported by 30 corporate and end user members, including GoDaddy, Google, IBM, Joyent, PayPal, and Microsoft.
The merger process started six months ago. It included consensus gathering from the community as well as close collaboration with the Linux Foundation and the governing boards of the Node.js Foundation and the JS Foundation. Today’s announcement reflects the new governance structure which is now in place.
