Community owned

The nf-core community was founded to allow different groups to collaborate on pipelines. One of the strengths of this approach is that pipelines are not tied to a specific group or individual. This means that as people’s time commitments and funding change, it’s possible for maintainance of a pipeline to shift between groups and for it to stay up to date.

Please be aware that by adding a pipeline to nf-core, you are agreeing to working in our collaborative ecosystem.

  • You must be willing to work with other contributors
  • Decisions about the pipeline will be made based on community consensus (with final say from core team and steering if needed, see governance)
  • Other people may add features and make releases

There is no problem with the following:

  • Publication of the pipeline by the primary developers
  • Use and publicity of the pipeline and nf-core
