EdgeX Foundry Technical Steering Committee
The Technical Steering Committee (TSC) is a committee composed of technical leaders from the open source project responsible for oversight of the technical codebase, the technical community and release process.
The TSC is responsible for:
coordinating the technical direction of the EdgeX Foundry Project, including the architecture and projects to achieve the Mission and Scope of the EdgeX Foundry Project;
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;
discussing, seeking consensus, and where necessary, voting on technical matters relating to the code base that affect multiple projects; and
establishing election processes for Maintainers or other leadership roles in the technical community that are not within the scope of any single project.

Voting on Issues
In various situations the EdgeX TSC shall hold a vote. These votes can happen on the phone, email, or via a voting service, when appropriate. TSC members can either respond "agree, yes, +1", "disagree, no, -1", or "abstain". Decisions by vote at a meeting require a majority vote, provided quorum is met, based on the charter (see 5(c)). An abstain vote equals not voting at all.
Each Working Group must have a chair and optionally a co-chair (or vice-chair). The Co-chair role assists in working group leadership and serves as a proxy for the chair when the work group chairperson is not present/available. While not official, the co-chair serves as heir apparent for the chair role for future project efforts. Each Working Group has a single vote in TSC matters - it can be either the chair or co-chair (i.e. - only one vote for TSC matters is given to each work group) .
The TSC has created the following working groups:
- Applications Working Group chaired by Lenny Goodell, Intel
- Core Working Group chaired by Cloud Tsai, IOTech
- Device and Device SDK Working Group chaired by Lindsey Cheng, IOTech
- DevOps Working Group chaired by Ernesto Ojeda, Intel
Farshid Tavakolizadeh (Canonical), Tom Brennan (Eaton), Elizabeth Lee (Intel), Melvin Sun (Intel), Darryl Mocek (Oracle) and James Butcher (IOTech) serve at "at large" TSC representatives.
Per 5/31/23 TSC pre-wire meeting, the security working group efforts are folded into the core working group. So there will be no more security working group (with TSC vote) as of the June 2023 TSC election cycle. The TSC also voted to add an additional "at large" TSC position to keep the TSC at 10 persons.
TSC meetings are open to the public. TSC meetings are bi-weekly at 8am PT on Wednesdays.
