## Motivation

The IEEE-SA Board of Governors Open Source Committee Operations Manual, §3.2.4 states: 
8
<blockquote>
9
<p>“IEEE Open Source Project peer reviewers, who are familiar with an IEEE Open Source Project’s functions, may be invited by the OSCom Community Manager or designee to perform a code review or evaluate the security, usability, performance, or other aspects of a planned release of an Open Source Project that is not an IEEE Open Source Project incorporated into IEEE standards (these IEEE Open Source Projects are reviewed under the Standards Association balloting and Public Review processes of the SASB).”</p>
