Cancelling Tomorrow's TOC meeting

Chris Aniszczyk
 

Alexis has informed me there's conflicts so we will cancel the TOC meeting for tomorrow.

He's also stated the graduation reviews will be moved to the next TOC meeting on the 20th and the TOC plans to give feedback via GitHub: https://github.com/cncf/toc/projects/2

We will also start incubation vote for Harbor (https://github.com/cncf/toc/pull/163) this week:

Thanks all and see some of you in Shanghai for KubeCon next week!

CNCF Awards Nominations Extended

Ihor Dvoretskyi <ihor@...>
 

Hello everyone!

A few weeks ago we’ve announced the third-annual CNCF Community Awards. Based on the community feedback, we’ve decided to extend the nomination phase for an extra week as many maintainers weren’t aware of the nomination process, the nomination forms are below:

 

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/cncf-ambassador-award-2018

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/cncf-committer-award-2018

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/cncf-chop-wood-carry-water-award-2018


Please, submit your nominations for the awards by Friday, November 9!

Thanks!



CNCF Maintainer/Committer Survey Results 2018 H2

Chris Aniszczyk
 

Hey all, here is a summary of maintainer survey results this year: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1NkaMG5FUf06m6397A-wb3IW0ibjisyRBg3rUuUI7Mu0/edit#slide=id.g44dbd86c82_0_338

Thanks everyone who responded, we had 100% project coverage the second time around which is great and had a small increase in the overall satisfaction from 4.18 H1 -> 4.20 H2. The biggest take aways for me from the survey were that maintainers love the events team, appreciate tech writing help and the response time for service requests.

The action items I have are around more help with docs/writers, project / end user specific events and more reminders to folks about what services are available via https://github.com/cncf/servicedesk

Also in January, we will be collating a lot of this data into an expanded annual report including project/maintainer data, you can see our 2017 annual report here as an example: https://www.cncf.io/blog/2018/04/11/cncf-annual-report/

We will also be kicking off the next maintainer survey early next year after the holidays and upcoming KubeCon and CloudNativeCon conferences. We will also cover these results in an upcoming TOC meeting.

Thanks all!

Re: FYI: TOC Election (Jan 2019)

Quinton, 100% of the changes to the charter were from votes by the GB and recorded in the GB minutes. In order to create the git history, we will be manually going through each board meetings minutes for the last 3 years. It may take a couple weeks, but you have my commitment to share it.

I don’t think that there’s particular urgency in manually stitching together git commits, but more importantly, according to the Charter:

18. Amendments

This charter may be amended by a two-thirds vote (excluding abstentions) of all Governing Board members.

So presumably the number of changes to the Charter over time has therefore been very small, and each one is accompanied by a vote by the GB, of which we should have a written record.

In the absence of a proper change log, could we at least in the mean time publish a list of all changes that were voted on by the GB, and any additional changes that were not voted on.

Thanks

I get your point, historically it's been a word doc because that's how lawyers love to craft these things initially.

We put the charter now on GitHub as the canonical source: https://github.com/cncf/foundation/blob/master/charter.md

I'll have my team go stitch together git commits representing the changes over time in GitHub, but will take a bit of time.

Bryan, you’re correct that three years ago all CNCF members participated in the nomination process. Reviewing the meeting minutes, I found the resolution that changed the nomination language. It was never updated in the public version of the charter on the website. I apologize for the error and have fixed this now on the website adding the resolution change to Section 6(e)(ii):

“Nominations: Each CNCF member may nominate up to two (2) technical representatives, (from vendors, end users or any other fields), at most one of which may be from their respective company. The nominee(s) must agree to participate prior to being added to the nomination list.”

We have opened up the nomination process to all CNCF members now and have modified the schedule accordingly to still allow one month of nominations for all members:

So, for the election of the 6 GB-appointed TOC members, each person on the GB may nominate up to two people, with at most one from their company, and then vote.

For the election for the end user-appointed TOC member, each company in the end user community can nominate and vote.

And then when the TOC has an election to reappoint or replace Quinton in March, the 7 non-TOC-appointed members of the TOC (meaning everyone but Quinton and Brian) will do the nominating and voting. We updated https://github.com/cncf/toc/blob/master/process/election-schedule.md to state whether they were GB-appointed, TOC-appointed, or end user-appointed: https://github.com/cncf/toc/commit/c46b1afb333f80fbf1b8e153cb207d069162511c

Hope this helps.

Chris,

I'm a little confused about the nomination process. In particular, I can't see where in the charter it describes who many nominate candidates for the TOC. In section 6(e)(ii) it says:

Each individual (entity or member) eligible to nominate a TOC member may nominate up to two (2) technical representatives, (from vendors, end users or any other fields), at most one of which may be from their respective company. The nominee(s) must agree to participate prior to being added to the nomination list.

But I cannot see where in the doc it is actually defines who is eligible to nominate a TOC member.  (Our implementation is that it is voting members of the governing board who are permitted to nominate, but why wouldn't the charter say that if that's the intent?)  I am trying to recall our chartering discussions, and I seem to recall that one of the advantages of any level of membership was that a member could nominate for the TOC; is that incorrect?  If so, would you mind pointing me to the document that defines the nomination process?

Somewhat similarly: I think it will also be helpful to get clarity about the origins of each member, to clearly delineate the 6 GB-determined members from the 2 TOC-determined members from the 1 end user-determined member.  Which is really a polite way of me saying that between the initial TOC conditions, the resignations, etc., I have lost track of who's who. ;)

TOC nominations are starting TODAY for the 6 TOC slots that open up in Jan 2019 that are selected by GB members (they can propose UP TO TWO NOMINEES as part of the GB, where you can only nominate up to one candidate from your organization, the other candidate has to be outside your organization): https://github.com/cncf/toc/blob/master/process/election-schedule.md

The seats that open up are:

Jonathan Boulle (term: 3 years - start date: 1/29/2016)
Bryan Cantrill (term: 3 years - start date: 1/29/2016)
Camille Fournier (term: 3 years - start date: 1/29/2016)

Ken Owens (term: 3 years - start date: 1/29/2016)
Alexis Richardson (term: 3 years - start date: 1/29/2016)

Here's the timeline for the election, we are giving ample time due to the holidays:

Oct 26th: Nominations Open (TODAY)
Nov 26th: Nominations Close
Nov 27th: Qualification Period Opens
Dec 14th: Qualification Period Closes (end of KubeCon Seattle)
Dec 17th: Election Opens
Jan 22nd: Election Closes
Jan 29th: Election Results Posted!

In summary, these nominations are for the 6 slots nominated by the CNCF Governing Board (GB) members. You have to be a CNCF GB member in order to nominate someone. Each CNCF GB member CAN NOMINATION ONLY TWO PEOPLE MAXIMUM, where only one of them can come from your company (the other candidate can come from anywhere). See CNCF Charter Section 6(e) for full election process details: https://www.cncf.io/about/charter

We will also discuss this at the next TOC meeting on Nov 6th regarding the process if the community has any questions.

Thanks!

And then when the TOC has an election to reappoint or replace Quinton in March, the 7 non-TOC-appointed members of the TOC (meaning everyone but Quinton and Brian) will do the nominating and voting. We updated https://github.com/cncf/toc/blob/master/process/election-schedule.md to state whether they were GB-appointed, TOC-appointed, or end user-appointed: https://github.com/cncf/toc/commit/c46b1afb333f80fbf1b8e153cb207d069162511c

Hope this helps.

Chris,

I'm a little confused about the nomination process. In particular, I can't see where in the charter it describes who many nominate candidates for the TOC. In section 6(e)(ii) it says:

Each individual (entity or member) eligible to nominate a TOC member may nominate up to two (2) technical representatives, (from vendors, end users or any other fields), at most one of which may be from their respective company. The nominee(s) must agree to participate prior to being added to the nomination list.

But I cannot see where in the doc it is actually defines who is eligible to nominate a TOC member.  (Our implementation is that it is voting members of the governing board who are permitted to nominate, but why wouldn't the charter say that if that's the intent?)  I am trying to recall our chartering discussions, and I seem to recall that one of the advantages of any level of membership was that a member could nominate for the TOC; is that incorrect?  If so, would you mind pointing me to the document that defines the nomination process?

Somewhat similarly: I think it will also be helpful to get clarity about the origins of each member, to clearly delineate the 6 GB-determined members from the 2 TOC-determined members from the 1 end user-determined member.  Which is really a polite way of me saying that between the initial TOC conditions, the resignations, etc., I have lost track of who's who. ;)

TOC nominations are starting TODAY for the 6 TOC slots that open up in Jan 2019 that are selected by GB members (they can propose UP TO TWO NOMINEES as part of the GB, where you can only nominate up to one candidate from your organization, the other candidate has to be outside your organization): https://github.com/cncf/toc/blob/master/process/election-schedule.md

The seats that open up are:

Jonathan Boulle (term: 3 years - start date: 1/29/2016)
Bryan Cantrill (term: 3 years - start date: 1/29/2016)
Camille Fournier (term: 3 years - start date: 1/29/2016)
Benjamin Hindman (term: 3 years - start date: 1/29/2016)
Ken Owens (term: 3 years - start date: 1/29/2016)
Alexis Richardson (term: 3 years - start date: 1/29/2016)

Here's the timeline for the election, we are giving ample time due to the holidays:

Oct 26th: Nominations Open (TODAY)
Nov 26th: Nominations Close
Nov 27th: Qualification Period Opens
Dec 14th: Qualification Period Closes (end of KubeCon Seattle)
Dec 17th: Election Opens
Jan 22nd: Election Closes
Jan 29th: Election Results Posted!

In summary, these nominations are for the 6 slots nominated by the CNCF Governing Board (GB) members. You have to be a CNCF GB member in order to nominate someone. Each CNCF GB member CAN NOMINATION ONLY TWO PEOPLE MAXIMUM, where only one of them can come from your company (the other candidate can come from anywhere). See CNCF Charter Section 6(e) for full election process details: https://www.cncf.io/about/charter

We will also discuss this at the next TOC meeting on Nov 6th regarding the process if the community has any questions.

Thanks!

Re: FYI: TOC Election (Jan 2019)

Chris Aniszczyk
 

I get your point, historically it's been a word doc because that's how lawyers love to craft these things initially.

We put the charter now on GitHub as the canonical source: https://github.com/cncf/foundation/blob/master/charter.md

I'll have my team go stitch together git commits representing the changes over time in GitHub, but will take a bit of time.

Bryan, you’re correct that three years ago all CNCF members participated in the nomination process. Reviewing the meeting minutes, I found the resolution that changed the nomination language. It was never updated in the public version of the charter on the website. I apologize for the error and have fixed this now on the website adding the resolution change to Section 6(e)(ii):

“Nominations: Each CNCF member may nominate up to two (2) technical representatives, (from vendors, end users or any other fields), at most one of which may be from their respective company. The nominee(s) must agree to participate prior to being added to the nomination list.”

We have opened up the nomination process to all CNCF members now and have modified the schedule accordingly to still allow one month of nominations for all members:

Oct 26th: Nominations Open

Dec 1st: Qualification Period Opens
Dec 14th: Qualification Period Closes (end of KubeCon Seattle)

Re: FYI: TOC Election (Jan 2019)

Bryan Cantrill <bryan@...>
 


I don't think that that's correct -- or rather, I don't see any grammatical way that "each individual (entity or member) eligible to nominate a TOC member may nominate..." can possibly refer to 6(e)(i), which describes the composition of the TOC.  If that's the intent, 6(e)(ii) would read: "each individual (entity or member) eligible to elect a TOC member may nominate..." (emphasis mine).  Again, I believe that our intent when developing the charter was that any member of the CNCF regardless of level would be able to at least nominate members for the TOC.  Moreover, when I look back at the nominations from three years ago, I see nominations from CNCF members from all levels (that is, regardless of membership level) -- and I can't find any document that indicates that the nomination process for that first election would have different nomination entity eligibility than our process now. 

So it is my belief that all CNCF members can participate in nominations -- not merely those who are on the governing board.  Mike, could you weigh in here?  This is highly relevant as it affects our current nomination process.

Totally agree that it's a bit confusing at first, but on the nomination point:

"Each individual (entity or member) eligible to nominate a TOC member may nominate" refers to the previous clause which says "The TOC shall be composed of nine (9) TOC members: six (6) elected by the Governing Board, one (1) selected by the End User TAB and two (2) elected by the initial seven TOC members."

So, for the election of the 6 GB-appointed TOC members, each person on the GB may nominate up to two people, with at most one from their company, and then vote.

For the election for the end user-appointed TOC member, each company in the end user community can nominate and vote.

And then when the TOC has an election to reappoint or replace Quinton in March, the 7 non-TOC-appointed members of the TOC (meaning everyone but Quinton and Brian) will do the nominating and voting. We updated https://github.com/cncf/toc/blob/master/process/election-schedule.md to state whether they were GB-appointed, TOC-appointed, or end user-appointed: https://github.com/cncf/toc/commit/c46b1afb333f80fbf1b8e153cb207d069162511c

Hope this helps.

Chris,

I'm a little confused about the nomination process. In particular, I can't see where in the charter it describes who many nominate candidates for the TOC. In section 6(e)(ii) it says:

Each individual (entity or member) eligible to nominate a TOC member may nominate up to two (2) technical representatives, (from vendors, end users or any other fields), at most one of which may be from their respective company. The nominee(s) must agree to participate prior to being added to the nomination list.

But I cannot see where in the doc it is actually defines who is eligible to nominate a TOC member.  (Our implementation is that it is voting members of the governing board who are permitted to nominate, but why wouldn't the charter say that if that's the intent?)  I am trying to recall our chartering discussions, and I seem to recall that one of the advantages of any level of membership was that a member could nominate for the TOC; is that incorrect?  If so, would you mind pointing me to the document that defines the nomination process?

Somewhat similarly: I think it will also be helpful to get clarity about the origins of each member, to clearly delineate the 6 GB-determined members from the 2 TOC-determined members from the 1 end user-determined member.  Which is really a polite way of me saying that between the initial TOC conditions, the resignations, etc., I have lost track of who's who. ;)
