We encourage anyone who's interested in participating in the formation of this standard, to join us on Gitter, and/or to join the discussions here on GitHub. Also feel free to fork this project and submit new ideas to add to the JSON Resume Schema standard. To make sure all formatting is kept in check, please install the EditorConfig plugin for your editor of choice.


JSON Resume Schema adheres to Semantic Versioning 2.0.0. If there is a violation of this scheme, report it as a bug. Specifically, if a patch or minor version is released and breaks backward compatibility, that version should be immediately yanked and/or a new version should be immediately released that restores compatibility. Any change that breaks the public API will only be introduced at a major-version release. As a result of this policy, you can (and should) specify any dependency on JSON Resume Schema by using the Pessimistic Version Constraint with two digits of precision.
