Welcome Facebook Open Source to Open Collective!
Facebook Open Source has joined Open Collective to support 8 different collectives. 🎉
SustainOSS: The Report is out!
On June 19th, 2017, one hundred people gathered in San Francisco to create a cultural shift in how we think about the sustainability of open source software! Find out more.
New expense flow.
We’ve revamped our expense flow! Hosts can now manage all their collectives from one single dashboard. Go to https://opencollective.com/:hostslug/collectives/expenses and try it out!
The new flow is also available for users to edit expenses (amount, category, payment method and to upload a new invoice). 🔔 🔔 Edited expenses need to be re-approved by a core member of the collective.
