  • approving new projects within the scope for CNCF set by the Governing Board, and create a conceptual architecture for the projects,aligning projects, removing or archiving projects,
  • accepting feedback from end user committee and map to projects,
  • aligning interfaces to components under management (code reference implementations before standardizing), and defining common practices to be implemented across CNCF projects, if any.

Mailing List


In various situations the CNCF TOC shall hold a vote. These votes can happen on the phone, email, or via a voting service, when appropriate. TOC members can either respond "agree, yes, +1", "disagree, no, -1", or "abstain". A vote passes with two-thirds vote of votes cast based on the charter (see 6(c)(viii)). An abstain vote equals not voting at all.
