Revision as of 18:06, 3 November 2015 by Lifeless (talk | contribs) (Agenda: hopefully following protocol this time)

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

  • November 3rd, 20:00 UTC
  • Chair: Thierry Carrez (ttx)


  • Add senlin project to big tent [1]
  • Freezer application to join the Big Tent [2]
  • Added JavaScript to Common Testing Interface [3]
  • Introduce assert:can-upgrade tag [4] and assert:can-live-upgrade tag [5]
  • Open discussion
    • Summit feedback
    • Reconsidering delayed project team applications
    • Automating objective tag updates
    • Should TC require scaling information from projects (lifeless)?
    • Leadership training for PTL & TC (lifeless)
    • Stabilisation cycle (lifeless)


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:

  • Add team:non-diverse-affiliation tag [6]

Delayed project team applications:

  • Add new project Kosmos [7] (no activity yet)
  • Add Juju Charms for Ubuntu to OpenStack [8] (no activity yet)
  • Adding Monasca to OpenStack [9] (needs to adopt more of the OpenStack way, reconsider once Mitaka is started)
  • Add new openstack kiloeyes repository [10] (no activity yet)
  • Add Fuel to OpenStack Projects [11] (needs more collaboration, reconsider once Mitaka is started)
  • Add Compass to OpenStack Projects [12] (needs to adopt more of the OpenStack way, reconsider once Mitaka is started)
  • WIP - Add Group Based Policy Project [13]

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.
