Open edX Proposals Index#

OEP (pronounced “oh-epp”) stands for Open edX (Enhancement) Proposal. An OEP is a document that details a specific technology decision being made by the Open edX community, in the form of a best practice, architecture design, or process adjustment. An OEP should provide the use cases and rationales that surround that choice. OEPs are not the only way for a change to be made to Open edX, however, the goal is to create a collection of OEP documents as a repository or knowledge archive of large and broadly relevant choices made for the platform.

OEPs#

Processes#

OEPs that relate to processes we want to put in place for the Open edX community.

Best Practices#

OEPs that relate to best practices that you should follow when working with the Open edX Platform. These are guidelines and not requirements. Use them unless you have a good reason not to.

Architectural Decisions#

OEPs that capture architectural decisions that impact the entire Open edX Platform. These are decisions that are sufficiently cross-cutting that there is no clear code repository where they should reside.
