Frequently Asked Questions

  • I've forgotten my username and/or password. What should I do?

There is a Password Help link at the bottom of each page. Click this link, enter your email address, and click Reset Password. You will receive an email with further instructions for resetting your username and password.

  • I had an account on both the OSCI and Accellera websites. Which login should I use?

We have made every effort to merge accounts from both the OSCI and Accellera websites into one account. Accounts are merged according to email address. If you had an account on both the OSCI and Accellera websites, then your OSCI login information should have been maintained. If you have difficulty logging into the site with your OSCI login information, use the Password Help form to reset your username and password. Contact us if you require additional help.

  • I had an account on the OSCI or Accellera website, but not both. Has my login information changed?

If you had an account on only the OSCI or Accellera website, then your login information should not have changed. If you have difficulty logging into the site, use the Password Help form to reset your username and password. Contact us if you require additional help.

  • Why didn't I receive an email to reset my username and password?

Check your "junk" or "spam" email folder for the message. Make sure admin@lists.accellera.org is on your list of accepted email addresses to keep email from being sent to these folders.

  • How do I edit my account information?

Log in to the site, click your name (upper right area of the screen under Workspace), and then click My Account. Make the desired account changes, then click Save.

  • Am I an employee of a member company?

Check the list of members to see if you are an employee of a member company. If so, you may register for access to the site as a member employee. You must have an email address with a domain that is associated with the member company. See the table earlier on this page for a description of the access levels for various areas of the site.

  • Why am I no longer a member employee?

If a company does not renew its membership, employees belonging to that company will no longer have member employee access to the site.

  • What should I do if I've changed companies?

If you are no longer an employee of a particular member company, contact us to change to a different member company, if applicable. You must have an email address with a domain that is associated with the member company.

  • I am having difficulty accessing my Working Group(s).

Contact us and describe which Working Groups(s) to which you previously had access.

  • My bookmarks are broken.

The former OSCI and Accellera websites have been merged. If you cannot find the information you need via the website menus, try using the site’s search feature. Contact us if you require additional help.

  • I still want to be registered on the site, but I do not want to receive email announcements or newsletters.

Log in to the site, click your name (upper right area of the screen under Workspace), and then click My Account. For the Receive Members Email option, choose "No, do NOT send general members email." When you are finished, click Save. If you later decide to receive this information, repeat these steps and choose "Yes, subscribe to the members email list and send other general announcements."

  • I no longer want to be registered on the site.

Contact us with "unsubscribe" in the comments field to be removed from the site.

  • When will new releases be available?
Accellera Systems Initiative strives for the highest quality it can achieve in the standards that it releases. We are not, however, a commercial software company with software sales revenues to support a paid development staff. Our working groups consist of volunteers whose main goal is the definition of standards to enable interoperability, not the development and support of software products. Also, we prefer to avoid too-frequent releases as we have found that the extensive commercial ecosystem that exists around many of our standards suffers when the baseline is moved too often. When we have new releases or draft releases, we will inform the community through the website and email announcements.
  • How do I report a bug?
If you find an issue with a standard and you are a member of a working group, please report the issue to the working group. If you are not a member of a working group, please submit the information via theTechnical Activities/Inquiries subject on the Contact Us form. We will forward it to the appropriate working group.

Occasionally, a call for review of a particular release will go out to the community. This may include a different method for reporting bugs. One example of this is the development of the TLM-2 forum, which was created for TLM-2 draft feedback.

The Web Site Help subject on the Contact Us form may be used for reporting issues with the website.
  • What happens with my bug report?

While we don't have a support staff to respond to every email, the members of the working groups do try to consider reported bugs and, where possible, repair them in the next released version of the open source software.
