OE Technical Steering Committee
The TSC consists of 5 people who are elected by, and ultimately be answerable to, the members of the OpenEmbedded organisation.
Here is the working copy of the new TSC charter.
The TSC meets on an irregular basis, but is happy to hold meetings on request if there are issues to discuss.
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:
- Martin Jansa (JaMa) - re-elected Aug 2019
- Richard Purdie (RP) - re-elected Aug 2019
- Paul Eggleton (bluelightning) - re-elected Aug 2019
- Bruce Ashfield elected Aug 2019
- Joshua Watt elected Aug 2019
Each member serves a two-year term. During election time, one member may stand for election every two months.
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.
