The OSGi Working Group Charter identifies the Steering Committee and Specification Committee as the key governing bodies to drive the facets of the working group for which there are elected positions to be filled.
The elected positions are for the Participant and Committer Members for which there are two seats for Participant Members and one seat for Committer Members to be elected for the Steering Committee and Specification Committee. Note that Strategic Members each have a representative appointed to these committees.
Through this email, we are happy to announce the Eclipse Foundation will hold an election on behalf of the working group using the proposed timetable listed below. This mimics the process used by other working groups as well as the Eclipse Foundation itself for filling elected positions on our Board.
Participant Members are: Adobe, Kentyou, Liferay Inc., Software AG
Committer Members are those who are engaged in projects under the purview of the working group. Committers may be considered members by virtue of either a) being employed by a working group corporate member, or b) an individual committer who has executed the SDV Working Group’s Individual Participation Agreement. If you are interested but unsure if you are a committer member, please reach out to us.
