Revision as of 09:26, 26 September 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

  • September 27th, 20:00 UTC
  • Chair: Thierry Carrez (ttx)


  • PTL election results
    • Add support for UTF-8 Character's in team data [1]
    • Update projects.yaml with results of the PTL elections [2]
    • Confirm Piet Kruithof as PTL for UX (no patch needed)
    • Remove Astara from official project team list (patch to be proposed by markmcclain)
    • Decide future of Security and OpenStackSalt project teams (based on the outcome of [3])
  • Tag neutron-lib as tc-approved-release [4]
  • Write down OpenStack principles [5]
  • Create a project tag for zero-downtime upgrades [6]
  • 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 charter yet, or are blocked for some other reason, or are just delayed while we process the earlier requests backlog:

  • Cross-project workshops schedule (scheduled for Oct 4)
  • Clarify the process for the TC approved release [7] (scheduled for Oct 4)
  • Add "Assume Good Faith" to OpenStack principles [8] (deferred until initial set of principles are approved)
  • Storlets to become official - Proposed governance change [9] (deferred, flaper87 to drive)
  • Add project Tricircle to OpenStack big-tent [10] (deferred, mordred to drive)
  • Add networking-cisco back into the Big Tent [11] (deferred)

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.
