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 name:

  • Bruce Ashfield (zeddii) re-elected Sep 2021
  • Jon Mason (jonmason) - elected Sep 2021
  • Joshua Watt (JPEW) re-elected Sep 2021
  • Paul Eggleton (bluelightning) - re-elected Sep 2021
  • Richard Purdie (RP) - re-elected Sep 2021

Each member serves a two-year term.


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.

Decision Making

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 topics

This list keeps a running list of topics for the TSC. If you would like to add a topic for discussion, please e-mail one of the TSC members or the list curator Joshua Watt so that the TSC is aware of the change. 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.
