The Istio Steering Committee is pleased to announce a revised charter, which opens up governance roles to more contributors and community members.
There are many wonderful contributors to the Istio community, including developers, SREs and mesh admins, working for companies large and small. We wanted to ensure that your voices were included, both in terms of representation and selection. Therefore, we have added 4 seats for representatives from 4 different organizations, who are not represented in the Contribution Seat allocation.
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2020 election; they must be received by September 6. Any project member can stand for election; all Istio members who have been active in the last 12 months are eligible to vote. Voting will start September 14.
Please follow the instructions in the election guide to nominate yourself or someone else.
We held a special Community Video Meeting where we discussed the changes to the charter, and the election process.
