Revision as of 20:41, 1 November 2016 by Emilienm (talk | contribs) (Apologies for Absence)

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 1st, 20:00 UTC
  • Chair: Thierry Carrez (ttx)


  • Barcelona feedback
    • General feedback
    • Following up on the BoD+TC+UC meeting
    • Add more ways to get extra-atcs into the books [1]
    • Outcome of the proprietary drivers discussion
  • Overdue update of mission statement in charter [2]
  • Update QA's extra-atc [3]
  • Tighten up language in "Contribution Is Our Currency" [4]
  • Add "Assume Good Faith" to OpenStack principles [5]
  • Open discussion
    • Using lazy consensus on "goals acknowledgement" changes ?


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:

  • Adjust TC and PTL election timeframes [6] (closing on Nov 8)
  • Add project Tricircle to OpenStack big-tent [7] (planned for Nov 8)
  • Add networking-cisco back into the Big Tent [8] (planned for Nov 8)
  • Add "servant leadership" to principles [9]
  • Create a project tag for zero-downtime upgrades [10] (pending upcoming discussion on automated testing)
  • Storlets to become official - Proposed governance change [11] (missing items tracking at [12])
  • Equal Integration Chances for all Projects [13] (round 2) (WIP)

Apologies for Absence

  • EmilienMː on vacations and will skip November 8th and November 15th meetings. I might join but really not sure (doing a long road-trip in US). Doug and Flavio are my proxies if needed.

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.
