I'm just a bit worried to limit that role to the elected TC members. If
we say "it's the role of the TC to do cross-project PM in OpenStack"
then we artificially limit the number of people who would sign up to do
that kind of work. You mention Ildiko and Lance: they did that line of
work without being elected.
Why would saying that we_expect_ the TC members to do that work limit
such activities only to those that are on the TC? I would expect the TC
to take on the less-fun or often-neglected efforts that we all know are
needed but don't have an obvious champion or sponsor.
I think we expect some amount of widely-focused technical or project
leadership from TC members, and certainly that expectation doesn't
prevent others from leading efforts (even in the areas of proposing TC
resolutions, etc) right?
Absolutely. I'm not saying the cross-project project management should
be restricted to or solely the responsibility of the TC. It's obvious
there are people outside of the TC that have already been doing this -
and no it's not always elected PTLs either. What I want is elected TC
members to prioritize driving technical deliverables to completion based
on ranked input from operators/users/SIGs over philosophical debates and
politics/bureaucracy and help to complete the technical tasks if possible.
