As of September 2012, the OpenStack project is governed by a number of bodies, defined by the OpenStack Foundation bylaws:


The OpenStack community relies on people stepping up to fill a number of leadership positions:

  • 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.
  • Cross Project Liaisons (CPLs) are the contact points for various horizontal functions in each project team.



We are holding elections regularly to renew a number of members present in these bodies. The next elections are due in January 2015 (Board of Directors) and April 2015 (PTLs & Technical Committee).

Current elections:
