I always thought it was 'Charterhouse Rules', but I guess not (I say this after a Google search for the alternatives). The idea of the rules is that "you can report out anything said, but you can't identify who said it." This is because, presumably, "people need to speak freely as they hash out things at a conference, and to do that they sometimes have to speak loosely in ways that don't translate outside the conference." Of, as I interpret such rules, "they're able to lie with impunity either inside or outside the meeting." Anyhow, this post isn't that: it's a suggestion that the Chatham House Rules could apply to open educational resource (OER) production: "in open education there is a need for a form of sharing that works like this, especially in collaborative projects."
