About the committee

The Istio Steering Committee oversees the administrative aspects of the project, including governance, marketing and community health. Steering exists to allow the Technical Oversight Committee to exclusively focus on the technical aspects of the project.

Some direct responsibilities of steering members to consider as you are deciding whether to run or who to vote for:

  • Establishing and enforcing principles to guide the Istio project.
  • Fostering an environment for a healthy and happy community of developers, contributors, vendors, and users.
  • Defining, evolving, and defending a Code of Conduct.
  • Setting marketing and advocacy direction for the project; establishing a publishing schedule and vetting content, encouraging and assisting community members in creating content for conferences, fostering an ecosystem of vendors.
  • Providing neutral mediation as appropriate to try to resolve non-technical disputes that arise as part of the project.

The top four candidates who are employed by a unique Company (as defined in the Charter) shall be deemed to be elected.
