+Governance in Gitano
+The project is owned by, and run by, __Daniel Silverstone__.
+While Daniel undertakes to listen to and take-on-board suggestions and
+recommendations from any project contributor. Final decisions are made
+by Daniel.
+Daniel is considering the possibility of some kind of board for the project
+but at this time this is only an idle consideration.
+Roles in the project
+Daniel is responsible for everything really.
+Should Daniel go under a bus
+In case of incapacitation, loss of life, or general disinterest in continuing
+the project, access to the DNS for `` and access to the content
+and thus rights to publish new software etc can be acquired by speaking to
+other [Pepperfish]( maintainers.

+Asserting the right to supply a change
+Any change you supply to Gitano or its associated projects will end up under
+the licence terms of that project. Typically that is either an ISC-like
+licence, or a Creative Commons licence for documentation and images. In order
+to do this there any any number of ways, but the one simplest and easiest
+to achieve is to use the `Signed-off-by` feature of Git's commits. If you
+submit commits which have this in, then the project will take those statements
+to mean that you understand the licence terms in play and that you have the
+right to license the content of the commits in that way.
