October 25 Board Meeting and Draft Bylaws Amendments

Jonathan Bryce
Hi everyone,

On October 25, the Foundation Board of Directors met by telephone. The purpose of the meeting was to continue the progress on the open infrastructure project support that has been ongoing over the last year[1]. For this meeting, we did an interactive review of a draft of amendments to the Bylaws of OpenStack Foundation.

These Bylaws amendments fall into 3 primary categories:

1) Make supporting additional open infrastructure projects an explicit part of the mission of the Foundation

2) Update the technical committee bylaws provisions to align more with the current operations of the Technical Committee

3) Clean up and remove outdated portions of the Bylaws that were necessary for the initial start up of the corporation in 2012

The unofficial notes etherpad[2] contains a good collection of comments made during the meeting about the initial draft. I am now sharing an updated draft that takes those comments into account as an attachment here. The Board has added an ad-hoc meeting to review this updated draft this Thursday[3] with the goal being to gather any remaining feedback required before the Board meeting in Berlin.

Following that, some of these amendments will require approval by the Platinum, Gold and Individual Member classes and will be up for general vote during the January Foundation election cycle. If you have any feedback on the Bylaws or any questions, please reach out to me.

Thanks!

Jonathan

Re: October 25 Board Meeting and Draft Bylaws Amendments

The Board met again on Thursday, reviewed the v7 draft and made some minor tweaks to the election language in the TC Member Policy. I’m attaching the redline for the current draft (v8) that we expect to discuss and vote on at the upcoming Board meeting in Berlin next week. If approved there, each class of Members (Platinum, Gold and Individual) will also vote to approve the amendments, which will happen in combination with the 2019 director elections.

We plan to talk about the progress on project governance and open infrastructure activities in a number of places around the Summit in Berlin, starting with the joint leadership meeting on Monday, the keynotes on Tuesday and Wednesday, a session with Lauren, Mark, Thierry and me Wednesday at 3:20, a cross-community technical leadership session Thursday at 10:50 and I’m sure lots of hallway and evening conversations. After the Summit we will continue highlighting it to encourage participation in the January election cycle.

Thanks to everyone who has participated in this process over the past year. Look forward to seeing many of you next week!

Jonathan
