xSDK Documents

A key aspect of work in the IDEAS project is development of an Extreme-scale Scientific Software Development Kit (xSDK) — a collection of related and complementary software elements that provide the building blocks, tools, models, processes, and related artifacts for rapid and efficient development of high-quality applications.

As an initial step in building the xSDK, we have written draft community policies to help address challenges in interoperability and sustainability of software developed by diverse groups at different institutions.  See details here:

We actively seek feedback from the community on these policies; please comment directly in the Google docs linked from this page.
