Chair and Vice Chairs for Projects


Silona Bonewald <sbonewald@...>
 

I would like all projects to either elect or have the TSC nominate Chairs and Vice Chairs.  The Chairs would serve more of a project manager role within the project's community. 

The CA team is seeing that larger projects that have many diverse repos and having Maintainers be responsible doesn't scale.  There is often confusion on who to speak with.
The CA team believes we need this type of role to help us scale to support more projects for the community.

The Chair's responsibilities would be:
  • Writing and giving Quarterly Updates to the TSC, and attending TSC calls, especially when presenting the Update.
  • Be the primary interface with the Hyperledger staff in regards to informing the project participants and contributors about ongoing Hyperledger activities, commitments, and cross-project initiatives
  • Keeping the list of active maintainers current.
We would like Vice Chairs to be available for when Chairs are not available esp on the larger projects.

We can scale this out gradually and not require every project to do this at first but we would like a deadline perhaps in 3 months time?  We would also like this to be a part of the project proposal process at the beginning.

This would require a vote of the TSC.

Discussion?

Thank you,
Silona
