Despite having numbers of high-quality projects on Github, Tencent is still a newcomer to the OSS community. Since 2018 Tencent has committed to building an open-source culture in the company. This includes learning from the industry standards, encouraging internal and external collaboration and contributing our practices and tools to the world.

And yet here we are.
