As mentioned in our first post of 2019, this year is shaping up to be our busiest yet. The OCI community plans to roll out updates to specifications, ship a v1.0 of runc + much more, all in the next few months!
One exciting new development ready to share is the selection of the following four board members, elected to each serve a two-year term on the OCI Technical Oversight Board (TOB) – comprised of independently elected individuals who provide oversight of the technical leadership and serve as a point of appeal:
- Vincent Batts (Red Hat)
- Michael Crosby (Docker)
- Aleksa Sarai (SUSE)
- Derek McGowan (Docker)
These newest TOB members join the following existing members, who are each in the middle of two-year terms:
- Taylor Brown (Microsoft)
- Stephen Day (Cruise)
- Phil Estes (IBM)
- Jon Johnson (Google)
- Mrunal Patel (Red Hat)
The TOB also voted to elect Michael Crosby (Docker) as the 2019 Chair. To learn more about the term limits, the function of the board + more, you can follow TOB activity here on GitHub.
We’d love to extend a big thank you to all of our outgoing TOB members – Vishnu Kannan and Greg Kroah-Hartman – for their commitment to OCI and its growing project community. We look forward to your continued collaboration on all things container standards!
As always, we welcome any + all contributions from the community – our progress this year banks on the support and collaboration of many 👍🏼
