In the Serenity Partner Program, our partners foremost deliver a pledge that "any joint Intellectual Property which organisation(s) work with the Muellners Foundation, are reduced to practice and released in open source via a compatible open source licensing and solution licensing best practices."This is done for humanitarian reasons, and it does have strong and technically qualifying merits.
Any individual member does not self nominate their proposal, in the case of a Serenity partner, visible conflicts of interests, might derail the goodwill of the represented Organisation. Therefore, members should take help from their peers. They should ensure that another peer, who nominates their proposal is not affiliated to the same Serenity partner organisation.
