"*" = duration codified in the charter

Some notes:

  • Some of the contribution types outlined in the charter are not captured in Insights (e.g., blog posts, whitepapers, etc.). ONAP handles this by providing the automated data and leaving it to contributors to provide information about those contributions with the approval of the TSC to adjust their total. Recommendation to use the same process during the PTL active contributor review timeframe for Anuket.
  • Also note that MAC rep was never meant to be bounded by the Active Contributor TSC process, and in fact has never been an official elected position. If elected, should probably be through a separate process, but recommendation is to continue providing MAC representation on a volunteer basis. 
  • Also recommendation that if no nominations are received for TAC rep or SPC rep that TSC chairs will serve in that role. (Note that by convention, we have typically elected a separate SPC rep but not TAC rep – just as historical data point).
