Participation Process

Dragon1 is an open Enterprise Architecture method governed by the Dragon1 Foundation.

If you want to contribute with a new or improved term, definition, translation or icon to the Dragon1 Glossary Of Terms, you only have to send your contribution, including arguments and/or discussion with others to specs@dragon1.com. Every contribution will be evaluated.

The terms, definitions and icons that are provided to us will be checked for copyright violations. If this is not the case these will be evaluated. As Dragon1 is an open method, all the terms, definitions and icons need to be free from copyright, else it would make Dragon1 not open.

You need to provide your icon in SVG format compliant to the Dragon1 icon standard.

On the resources part of Dragon1 every term has its own page detailing and explaining the term and positioning the term in the Dragon1 meta-model. Every term is related to other terms. A set of related terms as part of the meta-model is called a package. On every term page, a link to the related meta-model package is made.

Here you find a link to the meta model core package: architecture

Evaluation Process

On a monthly basis, the Dragon1 Foundation reviews contributions made to the Glossary of Terms.

A group of experienced architects and designers will evaluate the contributions and checks if the contribution will improve the meta model.

If the contribution is approved as addition or update, it will published here on the resources part of the site.
