Given the many possible AUPs in use which might form a basis for a common baseline, a study was conducted in the AARC project comparing 11 existing community and infrastructure AUP texts, looking for commonalities and discrepancies to inform the project. From an initial reading, it was apparent that a majority of the texts already shared a common heritage. Adopting the result of the AUP Study - and given that the so-called ‘JSPG' AUP clauses reflected the common heritage and could be used as a baseline template - an initial Baseline AUP was created and subsequently evolved. In March 2019 the WISE community adopted the AUP clauses and form (it is currently under final editing in the Steering Committee for formatting and presentation updates only).
