Technical Committee Tracker

Revision as of 14:32, 27 November 2018 by ThierryCarrez (talk | contribs) (Reviewing the TC Vision)

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/ .

This page tracks the various governance changes being proposed and the various initiatives the Technical Committee is pursuing. We hold office hours at various times during the week on the #openstack-tc IRC channel. Conversation starters for the office hours are here.

Other tasks can be found in the storyboard project.

Documentation Changes

Other Initiatives

Correction to TC member election section of bylaws

Drivers: fungi, dhellmann

Status: On hold until the next Foundation vote

This was discussed in the joint leadership meeting in Vancouver. The change requires a member vote, and the Board passed a resolution allowing the Foundation Secretary to propose the bylaws change as part of the next Board election (early 2019). We anticipate other bylaws changes at the same time.

Section 3.b.i reads "An Individual Member is an ATC who has..." but should read "An ATC is an Individual Member who has…"

Actively Monitoring Teams

Drivers: dhellmann

Status: In process

During the retrospective at the Rocky Forum we discussed more actively engaging with project teams and SIGs to anticipate issues we can help resolve.


Clarifying Requirements for PTL Contact Details


Monty pointed out that we have a general community expectation that leaders are visible via IRC. That may not always be the case for some corners of our community, however. We need to decide whether we want to require IRC nicks for PTL candidates, whether we want to include other forms of contact for other chat platforms (optionally?), etc. and write a resolution so the election official have clear guidance.

2018-09-09 - need to figure out how to ask PTLs for a primary means of contact without dictating a specific means and without opening ourselves up to having to sign on to every new chat tool
