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.

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.
