Dear all,
the URL to our charter resolves to the RH definition. I take it you submitted the charter.
I’ve commented on the definition. Too bad I couldn’t take part in the discussion. The inclusion of research software in the definition of RH requires more elaboration.
I added suggestions to the document for use/edge cases.
Best regards,
