Topic: Gov/Org TF Kick off
Date: Sep 24, 2020 06:57 Pacific Time (US and Canada)

Meeting Recording:




  • Select POC/Lead
  • Discuss discuss charter development
  • Discuss Organizational Structure options
  • Determine coming week actions items and assignments


Legal and organizational requirements are inter-related and yet distinct.

Legal requirements:

  • Updated charter
    • Name
    • Scope/Mission Statement
    • "Interim" TSC(?)
    • Our charter calls out to other "non-legal" documents for the remainder of governance/ops
  • Updated partnership agreement w/ GSMA
  • A single vote by the existing OPNFV TSC to agree to the updated charter

To make ourselves successful 

  • Roles and responsibilities of TSC members
  • Expectations/eligibility requirements of TSC
  • Election processes
  • Governance at a conceptual and strategic level (e.g., GB, MAC, SPC, TAC touchpoints)
    • Short and long term 
    • Who are we existentially?
    • What is our value?
  • Workstream and project structure – overall org structure and goals
    • This is likely the most defining and important – but isn't a legal matter
  • Other activities that are under the purview of the Operations Task Force (tooling, releases, processes)
  • Best practices
  • Operational Guidelines Document Update (
    • We also have procedures defined in a number of wiki pages, including project lifecycle, election procedures, etc. We may want to look at streamlining this documentation during this process.
