With a few hours in advance (blame Bastille Day!) this is the weekly
update on Technical Committee initiatives. You can find the full list of
all open topics at:


== Recently-approved changes ==

* Add Queens goal: policy and docs in code [1][2][3]
* Add champions to selected Pike goals [4]
* Remove remaining 'big tent' references [5]
* New repositories: castellan-ui, tripleo-upgrade, os-service-types,

[4] https://review.openstack.org/#/c/482869/
[5] https://review.openstack.org/#/c/480500/

So the cross-project goals for the Queens cycle have been defined, you
can find them at:


One difference with the Pike goals is that each goal will have an active
champion to project-manage them to completion, providing assistance,
reminders and sometimes direct help to the project teams.

== Open discussions ==

We have two new project teams being actively discussed, for potential
approval once the Queens cycle is opened: Glare[6][7] and Blazar[8].
Please ask questions or voice your objections at:

Discussion is still in progress on two clarifications from John Garbutt,
where new patchsets have been recently posted:

Decisions should be globally inclusive:

Describe what upstream support means:

== Voting in progress ==

The TC vision for 2019 was discussed at a recent TC meeting[9],
brilliantly summarized by cdent at [10].

It now has majority votes, and is about to be approved early next week,
in the form of the following patch chain:


This vision is of course produced on a specific date by a specific
membership of the TC. Future TC members should definitely revisit it and
potentially produce a new vision for another point in the future if they
feel like the current vision is no longer productive.

The long-standing "Declare plainly the current state of PostgreSQL in
OpenStack" resolution is just one formal vote away from being approved:


Finally, a number of tag changes are about to be approved: unless there
are objections congress should get the stable:follows-policy tag[11],
and Nova and Ironic should get the assert:supports-api-interoperability

== TC member actions for the coming week(s) ==

flaper87 to update "Drop Technical Committee meetings" with a new

dims to sync with Stackube on progress and report back

== Need for a TC meeting next Tuesday ==

No initiative is currently stuck, so there is no need for a TC meeting
next week.
