Revision as of 08:54, 30 November 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

  • December 6th, 20:00 UTC
  • Chair: Thierry Carrez (ttx)


  • Driver teams: discuss various options [1]
    • add a resolution allowing teams based on vendor-specific drivers [2]
    • establish a new "driver team" concept [3]
    • add resolution requiring teams to accept driver contributions [4]
    • Proprietary driver dev is unlevel [5]
    • Driver development can be level [6]
    • Stop requiring a level playing field [7]
    • Level playing fields, except drivers [8]
  • Amend reference/PTI with supported distros [9]
  • Do not allow data plane downtime during upgrades [10]
  • 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:

  • Reference doc for new language additions [11] (pending new patchset)
  • Add networking-cisco back into the Big Tent [12] (deferred until we get to a decision on driver teams)
  • Visions for the TC and OpenStack [13] [14] (to be moved to SWG for building up an initial draft)
  • Storlets to become official - Proposed governance change [15] (missing items tracking at [16])
  • Equal Integration Chances for all Projects [17] (needs round 2)

Apologies for Absence

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.
