CIG develops, supports and disseminates community-accessible software for the geodynamics research community. As such, codes must meet community standards and be within the scope of the organization to be accepted. A hosted code is supported by CIG Staff in an open source repository which utliizes an automatic build and test framework; automated document generation, and provides file space for related files.
By donating codes to CIG, researchers expose their code to a wider audience and provide provenance for published research. This helps to prevent duplication of effort, clarifies methodology, provides a referenceable source and aids researchers who are interested in similar problems.
CIG codes are currently hosted in a GIT repository.
All CIG codes, donated or developed in-house, are expected top meet the following criteria:
Donated codes are reviewed by the Science Steering Committee whose recommendations are forwarded to the Executive Committee. If approved, CIG will host the code by creating a software web page and migrating the code to its repository. CIG will continue to maintain the code at the accepted service level unless otherwise warranted in which at such time its status may change.
