The OpenStack Technical Committee is one of the governing bodies of the OpenStack project. It is an elected group that represents the contributors to the project, and has oversight on all technical matters.

The Technical Committee is formally defined in the OpenStack Foundation bylaws (in particular article 4.1(b), article 4.13 and Appendix 4) and further refined in the Technical Committee charter.

  • Open discussion


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 bylaws yet, or are blocked for some other reason, or are just delayed while we process the earlier requests backlog:

  • A program for Rally [7], final decision (before Sep 16 -- scheduled Aug 26)
  • Graduation review: Barbican (before Sep 16 -- scheduled Aug 26/Sep 2)
  • Graduation review: Ironic (before Sep 16 -- scheduled Sep 9/Sep 16)
  • Graduation review: Marconi/Zaqar (before Sep 16 -- scheduled Sep 9/Sep 16)

At every milestone we should review progress on the incubation/integration gap coverage plans:

Apologies for Absence

Presenting a motion before the TC

Motions need to be presented at least 4 business days before the next meeting scheduled time. They should be posted to openstack-dev@lists.openstack.org, then 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.

Note that before being voted on, motions must now be presented as a governance change.
