The OpenStack governance is described on the '''https://governance.openstack.org''' website.
=== Bodies ===
As of September 2012, the OpenStack project is governed by a number of bodies, defined by the [[Governance/Foundation/Bylaws|OpenStack Foundation bylaws]]:
* [[Governance/Foundation|Foundation]] board of directors
* [[Governance/Foundation/TechnicalCommittee|Technical Committee]]

=== Leaders ===
The OpenStack community relies on people stepping up to fill a number of leadership positions:
* [[PTL_Elections_March_2016#Results|Project Team Leads]] (PTLs) are elected for each project team. They manage day-to-day operations, drive the project team goals
and resolve technical disputes within their project team.
