OE Technical Steering Committee
The TSC consists of 5 people who are elected by, and ultimately be answerable to, the members of the OE e.V.
Here is the working copy of the new TSC charter.
The TSC meets approximately every two weeks.
The TSC discusses technical issues for the direction of OpenEmbedded. Note that the TSC is NOT chartered with actually doing all of the work discussed, but they do make every effort to locate resources to do that work.
In order by election:
- Richard Purdie (RP) - elected Jul 2011
- Khem Raj (khem) - elected Oct 2011
- Paul Eggleton (bluelightning) - elected Dec 2011
- Mark Hatle (fray) - elected Mar 2012
- Koen Kooi (koen) - elected Apr 2012
Each member serves a two-year term. During election time, one member may stand for election every two months. The next election will be for Richard Purdie's seat in July, 2013.
NOTE: as of June 2013, elections are due but are deferred pending discussion about the future of the TSC
On a day-to-day basis the TSC is responsible for making tactical policy decisions, resolving disputes between contributors, administering access control to the git tree, and generally promoting good development practice.
Decisions are made where necessary by majority vote. Once a decision is made by the technical steering committee, the decision should be respected as a democratic decision.
TSC issue escalation procedure
The best way to agendize an issue for the TSC is to send email to one of the TSC members or to Jefro, the curator. The issue will be added to the agenda for the next meeting. If the issue is particularly urgent, a specific TSC meeting may be called.
