WheatIS contributors

17 Dec 2015

It is now possible for people to apply to be officially listed as
"WheatIS contributors".
The WDI RDA group members did a very important work for the WheatIS, so
I encourage you to apply.
Here are the details :
Whereas the WheatIS Expert Working Group (EWG) constitutes the steering
body for the WheatIS initiative and leads the implementation of the
WheatIS infrastructure, it is considered important to provide
recognition to those individuals outside the EWG who are also
contributing to the initiative.
WheatIS contributors are wheat or computer scientists (researcher or
technician) making individual technical contributions to the WheatIS
WheatIS contributors can participate in different ways according to
their skills. A non-exhaustive list of potential roles includes:
* To participate in the maintenance of a WheatIS node infrastructure.
* To manage data to be shared through the WheatIS system.
* To develop the infrastructure improving existing tools or providing
new software.
* To contribute or participate in working groups in charge of specific
WheatIS contribtors contributions will be acknowledged on the WheatIS
website, in communications, publications or other official documents as
appropriate. The mailing list wheatis-contributors wheatis.org will be
used for communication within the group. Members will be invited to the
annual WheatIS Expert Working Group meeting and to participate in other
communication events.
