The devicetree.org initiative will operate transparently, openly, collaboratively, and ethically. Proposals, timelines, and status of the specification must not only be open but easily accessible by non-members. The Technical Steering Committee (“TSC”) shall ensure that all technical decisions are made in an open and transparent fashion, and that all communication will be fair, open, and consistent.
The TSC will establish the governance and operations process for devicetree.org.
This includes, but is not limited to:
The TSC is responsible for all aspects of the governance of devicetree.org. This includes, but is not restricted to defining the release schedule, technical best practices, mediating technical conflicts between Committers, Contributors and Community leads, and organizing inter-project collaboration. The TSC will also serve as devicetree.org’s liaisons with other consortia and groups.
The Chair will steer discussions on the evolution of the Devicetree Specification, which will include consideration of the following criteria:
Vice-Chair shall lead the TSC when the TSC Chair is unable to do so and will serve as an advisor to the TSC Chair on the direction of running the TSC
The maintainer shall review and merge patches at https://github.com/devicetree-org
Create timely releases of the Specification as agreed by the TSC
The technical writer shall ensure the Specification is clearly articulated.
The Administrator role is not a dedicated role and could be fulfilled by anyone. They will ensure that all technical decisions and action items in meetings are recorded and followed up on.
