  • approving project proposals (including, but not limited to, incubation, deprecation and changes to a project’s charter or scope) in accordance with a project lifecycle document to be developed, approved and maintained by the TSC;

  • designating top level projects, Umbrella Projects and facilitating synergy, collaboration and technical coordination (API, data Models etc.) across all projects;

  • creating sub-committees or working groups to focus on cross-project technical issues or opportunities;

  • coordinate technical community engagement with the End User (as defined in Section 6 of Project Charter) community with respect to requirements, high level architecture, implementation experiences, use cases, etc.;

  • communicating with external and industry organizations concerning Project technical matters;

  • appointing representatives to work with other open source or standards communities;

  • establishing community norms, workflows or policies for releases;
