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 TC governance website at https://governance.openstack.org/tc/ . It meets weekly in an open meeting in the #openstack-meeting IRC channel on Freenode. See the governance website for details on how to propose governance changes.

Queens Goals

  • Need for project-management by Goal champions to ensure smoother delivery, see thread at [11]
  • Goal selection
    • We'll probably only pick 2, currently leading the pack are:
      • Split Tempest plugins (already approved)
      • Policy and docs in code [12]
    • Other proposals
      • Discovery alignment (two options):
        • Add Queens goal to add collection links [13]
        • Add Queens Goal for full discovery alignment [14]
      • Migrate off paste [15]
        • This one is considered a bit vague, lacking a practical success story in one project
      • Continuing Python 3.5+ Support​ [16]
        • We should wait for Pike goal completion before "extending" this one
  • Follow-ups
    • Clean up boilerplate code in policy docs goal [17]
