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 TC governance website at https://governance.openstack.org/tc/ . It meets weekly in an open meeting in the #openstack-meeting IRC channel on Freenode.

Next Meeting

  • May 2nd, 20:00 UTC
  • Chair: Thierry Carrez (ttx)


  • Elect chair [1] (add your candidacy here)
  • Drop Technical Committee meetings [2]
  • Do not make decisions using synchronous communication [3]
  • Change the target for this goal to uWSGI not Apache mod_wsgi [4]
  • TC to have approve authority on maintenance-mode projects [5]
  • 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:

  • Driver teams options & Adding networking-cisco back into the Big Tent [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] (thingee to get in touch with networking-cisco folks)
  • Add Queens goal split out tempest plugins [11] (work in progress)
  • Introduce assert:supports-api-compatibility [12] (pending approval of [13])
  • deprecate postgresql in OpenStack [14] (needs clarity about whether we would drop it even if we received support, forum discussion)
  • Describe what upstream support means [15] (might be unnecessary if we decide to contract for technical reasons)
  • Add tag assert:never-breaks-compat [16] (work in progress)
  • Draft technical committee vision for public feedback [17] (waiting for feedback @ Forum)
  • Fix comment about design summits [18] (waiting for new revision)

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.
