Three of the organisations in the fractured Scrum community have jointly announced their collaboration and endorsement of the new website as the official 
source of “The Scrum Guide, The Definitive Guide to Scrum: The Rules of the Game.” 

The Scrum Alliance, Scrum Inc and jointly announced their collaboration and the formation of the website.  

According to the press release Dr. Jeff Sutherland and Ken Schwaber created Scrum and authored “The Scrum Guide” to ensure Scrum remains true to its core principles and values
Sutherland said
The Scrum Guide is the canonical definition of Scrum. Ken and I have worked closely together for decades to keep it simple, clear, and, in the true spirit of Scrum, to include only what is absolutely necessary.  Scrum is a powerful tool to radically increase productivity. Every implementation of Scrum is different, as teams and organizations apply it within their context, but the fundamental framework always remains the same. For Scrum Alliance,, and Scrum Inc. to come together to recognize the central place the Scrum Guide holds will provide clarity to the hundreds of thousands of Scrum practitioners across the planet.
The website has versions of the Scrum Guide available in over 30 different languages, has the content as a web version and presents a history of Scrum and it's authors. 
The site also summarizes the new/changed content in the latest version of the Scrum Guide.
