Technical Committee Tracker
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.

Project team changes
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…"
Technical Vision for OpenStack
Drivers: zaneb, ttx, cdent
Status: Under dicussion
Zane offered to start creating a "technical vision" for OpenStack to help clarify the boundary for where projects fit into OpenStack and where they may not.
During the FFU session at the Rocky Forum, Dan Smith and David Medberry indicated interest in defining tags to describe what upgrade features deployment tools have.
Next steps in TC Vision / defining role of the TC
Drivers: ttx, TheJulia, cdent
Status: Retrospective done in Berlin. Work on a "role of the TC" living document as the next step https://storyboard.openstack.org/#!/story/2004432
Reviewing TC Office Hour Times and Locations
During the retrospective at the Rocky Forum we talked about changing our office hour times or using different tools to make them more accessible.
2018-09-09 - chair to raise this question with the TC after the election completes
Actively Monitoring Teams
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
