Summary of ASWF structure

Andrew Kaufman
 

Hi all,

Apologies if this has been asked/answered before, but I couldn't find much info in the obvious places. I'm looking for some public documentation of the foundation structure, including the roles of the governing board, TAC, and project TSCs. Basically, a public equivalent to the "Open Source Investigation Summary and Recommendations" pdf that was circulated before the foundation was formed.

Thanks,
Andrew

Hey Andrew!

There are some slides in the overview deck which might help - I've attached them below...

Also https://github.com/AcademySoftwareFoundation/tac has a lot of what you might be looking for, as well as the various GOVERNANCE, CONTRIBUTING, etc., in the individual projects such as OpenColorIO and OpenVDB.

Thanks, those slides are helpful, as is the tac GitHub page, but I was looking for something more detailed regarding how people are appointed/elected to the Governing Board and TAC. I think sections 4.1-4.3 of the aforementioned pdf do a good job laying out the landscape of the foundation, assuming it still applies as written there (aside from the name change). Is there any reason not to make that portion of the document public (either as an attachment here, as an markdown file on the tac GitHub page, or as a first class section of aswf.io)?

That's perfect, thanks!

John,

  Is that charter linked from our website anywhere? I realize it might not be very discoverable right now.

It was at first, but just realized it isn't and working to get it added back in there.
