Revision as of 17:03, 13 December 2016 by ThierryCarrez (talk | contribs)

The OpenStack Technical Committee is one of the governing bodies of the OpenStack project. You can find more information about it, such as the list of its current members or its governance charter, on the OpenStack governance website at http://governance.openstack.org . It meets weekly in an open meeting in the #openstack-meeting IRC channel on Freenode.

Next Meeting

  • December 13th, 20:00 UTC
  • Chair: Thierry Carrez (ttx)


  • Do not allow data plane downtime during upgrades [1]
  • Some early contribution stats for Ocata (ttx)
  • Relaxing IRC meeting policy [2] (ttx)
  • Driver teams: remaining options [3][4][5][6]
  • Open discussion
    • Joint BoD+TC meeting around PTG
    • Progress on Amend reference/PTI with supported distros [7]
    • New patchset for Reference doc for new language additions [8]
    • Use six.add_metaclass instead of __metaclass__ [9] (?)


These items have been proposed, but are not put on the agenda just yet. Could be that they have not been discussed on openstack-dev for the time mandated by our charter yet, or are blocked for some other reason, or are just delayed while we process the earlier requests backlog:

  • Reference doc for new language additions [10] (planned for Dec 20 meeting)
  • Storlets to become official - Proposed governance change [11] (missing items tracking at [12])
  • Add networking-cisco back into the Big Tent [13] (deferred until we get to a decision on driver teams)
  • Visions for the TC and OpenStack [14] [15] (to be moved to SWG for building up an initial draft)
  • Equal Integration Chances for all Projects [16] (needs round 2)

Apologies for Absence

Proposing discussion topics, motions or other governance changes before the TC

Motions need to be presented before Friday 0800 UTC to be added to the next Tuesday meeting agenda for discussion. They should either be posted as a proposed change to the governance repository (on review.openstack.org) or as a "[tc]" thread to openstack-dev@lists.openstack.org, with a pointer to that thread should be posted to openstack-tc@lists.openstack.org to make sure it gets the required attention from TC members. Upon verification, the TC Chair will put the motion on the agenda for the next meeting.

Before being finally voted on, motions will have to be presented as a governance change. As mandated by our charter, the vote on motions won't be closed until we spent a minimum of 4 business days of public discussions, to give a chance to our wider community to chime in on proposed changes.

Additions of code repositories to existing project teams, as well as other instances of governance repository housekeeping, do not constitute a "motion". Those will be approved a week after being proposed, if they have the required approvals (PTLs in the case of a repository addition) and no TC member -1 vote. A -1 vote will result in the proposed change to be reviewed at the next TC meeting.
