Asking for help was not very successful, partially due to how intimidating it is for new contributors to join. Maybe proposing mentoring if you offer time is a more positive way to look at it.

Cross-project work is still difficult. Maybe formalizing the concept of pop-up teams a bit more, with clear scope and disband criteria (under the model of [https://github.com/kubernetes/community/blob/master/committee-steering/governance/wg-governance.md Kubernetes working groups]) would help.

The initial [https://governance.openstack.org/tc/reference/technical-vision.html vision] has been created. The agreed next step (to be done by cdent and TheJulia) is to publicize it and request that projects self-evaluate themselves against the vision.

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

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. Since Xena release cycle we started to track the per release items in etherpad. In start of the every release cycle, the OpenStack Technical Committee will prepare that release tracker which can include the backlogs from previous release if any item is not finished and worth to continue.

We hold the weekly meeting on Thursday at 1500 UTC in #openstack-tc IRC channel.
