Introduction by OpenMethods Editor (Erzsébet Tóth-Czifra):
Sustainability questions such as how to maintain digital project outputs  after the funding period, or how to keep aging code and infrastructure that are important for our research up-to-date are among the major challenges DH projects are facing today.

We are pleased to announce the publication of four project charters (ranging from 2016 to 2019) and two pieces of software documentation: the “Built by CDH” warranty and long term service agreement documents. These charters are works of scholarship, and we’re excited to be publishing and sharing them more widely.
