The InnerSource Commons works under the Chatham House Rule in order to create safe environments that help organizations to interact. InnerSource patterns—characterizations of the usual problems found when applying InnerSource across several organizations and their solutions—are a significant aspect of the InnerSource community. While the issues described in the patterns are solved in a number of ways depending on the organization, the key point about the InnerSource patterns community is that these patterns are shared with others and made publicly available for the benefit of the industry.

Daniel Izquierdo offers an overview of the InnerSource pattern community, including common vocabulary and concepts, shares some existing patterns, and explains how to participate in and help to advance the InnerSource body of knowledge.
