As the number of production OpenStack deployments increase and more ecosystem partners add support for OpenStack clouds, it becomes increasingly important that the communities building services around OpenStack guide and influence the product evolution. The user committee's role is to represent the needs of the diverse range of OpenStack users.
The user committee mission is to:
- Consolidate user requirements and present these to the management board and technical committee
- Provide guidance for the development teams where user feedback is requested
- Track OpenStack deployments and usage, helping to share user stories and experiences
- Work with the user groups worldwide to keep the OpenStack community vibrant and informed
How to Engage?
The committee co-ordinates via the user-commitee mailing list.
