Based on the complexity of the project and the fee level, OpenCV technical team will set up a weekly/bi-weekly/monthly call with the Development Partner to go over the progress made. These meetings will help the engineers from the Development Partner to build expertise in writing optimized code with best practices.
If the engineers of the Development Partners are contributing at a high level of expertise, the OpenCV technical team will recognize them as an expert in OpenCV development and optimization. When expert status is achieved by a Development Partner, they will be given permission to carry the OpenCV Development Expert logo on their site. They may also request a reference letter from OpenCV acknowledging their contribution and expertise.
Development Partners are invited to write 4 educational blog posts per year for the OpenCV community. These posts will be publicized using OpenCV newsletters, and social media accounts. The posts need to provide real value to the OpenCV community and should not be a product promotion. The partner company will however be provided clearly designated space where they can add a blurb and link back to their company site. The posts will need to be approved by OpenCV’s editorial staff.
Changelog and Release Notes
OpenCV will acknowledge the contributions of the Development Partner in release notes and change logs both on the website and GitHub repository.
OpenCV.org will do a press release once a quarter announcing new Development Partners.
