    1. Today, while many benefit from the past contributions of members of the OER community, the sustainability of the movement itself is directly related to the future health and vibrancy of new community contributions.

      A thorny issue here related to contribution just in the case of higher education textbooks in the USA (obviously there are lots of other cases to consider): Currently, most US EDU textbook "contributions" are given to commercial publishers from individual students in the form of money (although shaped by instructor and institutional choices). To reshape this contribution flow, EITHER we need mechanisms for students to contribute directly to OER efforts (like SUNY's OER Services model, SLCC's OER course fee model, models where students actively create/revise OER materials via "renewable assignments", and others), AND/OR we need to shift contributions away from students and toward — most likely — institutions (like Tidewater CC's Increased Tuition Revenue (INTRO) model and others).

    2. Toward a Sustainable OER Ecosystem: The Case for OER Stewardship

      I'm keeping a running list of other works that I've come across that respond to the CARE Framework in the Zotero Open Knowledge Practices library under the tag "careframework". Reply to this annotation to add more (or you can contact me with suggestions or to join the Zotero OKP group).

      Note: in Zotero you can open Library Settings at the upper right to show other columns in the list, like date (of publication), and then sort by exposed columns.

    3. commercial OER publishers

      So maybe like we ask vendors to provide VPATs for accessibility, we might ask commercial OER vendors how they serve the CARE Framework?

    4. the OER movement benefits and is itself enriched from the broad participation of individuals

      Inclusion is a benefit for the including community, not just for the newly included.

    5. to download and  share

      I would also add revise here, as copying and sharing OER is even more powerful when one can do so in a format that supports revision.

    6. to download

      This is where the Retain of 5Rs comes in strong.

    7. we must practice conspicuous attribution

      I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking that adapting mechanisms from the way citations are handled and valued in research and scholarly publication might help make attribution both something people do and benefit from more regularly.

    8. Locating people at the center of the CARE Framework serves to remind us first and foremost of the broader social context and purpose of the OER movement.

      Yes! And shifting focus away from OER as a collection of artifacts towards OER as the results of interactions between people, content and tools.

    9. the predominant business models of the educational technology and publishing industries have been predicated on the concept of access limitations and scarcity

      Defining predominant commercial content/tools business models.

    10. reused, adapted, and shared

      Include "retain"? It's hard to reuse, adapt or share without rights to retain.

    11. It aims to address the question of how an individual, institution, or organization seeking to be a good steward can contribute to the growth and sustainability of the OER movement consistent with the community’s values.

      CARE's goal

    12. how we might sustainably scale the movement over time and across diverse contexts, while still staying true to the values of openness that attracted so many to OER in the first place

      Perhaps the most succinct statement of the core issue.

    13. analogous “open” efforts

      Again, maybe we should include "open educational practices" here so as to focus on related practices as well as collections of artifacts.

    14. issues such as

      We might include "open pedagogies" or similar in this list.

    15. unrestricted by traditional copyright

      Or given that CC sits on a foundation of traditional copyright and has multiple flavors, maybe something like: "under specific rights granted beyond the basic "all rights reserved" of standard copyright.
