Foundation/steering comittee

The current editor of the Gekko project is Thomas Thomsen, T-T Analyse. The last meeting in the steering committee was held on Statistics Denmark in May 2015.

The main point of the foundation is that there is a steering committee trying to prioritize the needs of users and contributors. At the steering committee meetings, which are held at least annually, the work is planned and prioritized, and an editor is elected for a one year period. The editor is in charge of organizing the Gekko project, implementing new source code, testing, website etc. The steering committee is self-supplementing and open for contributors  and people with a serious interest in the project.

Since the code is open-source, anybody can in principle create a branch of the software, as long as the result is still open-source (GNU GPL). However, the steering group will try to consider all interests fairly, in order to keep the project going in one direction.
