Project maintainers are responsible for activities around maintaining and updating Dapr. Final decisions on the project reside with the project maintainers.
Maintainers MUST remain active. If they are unresponsive for >3 months, they will be automatically removed unless a super-majority of the other project maintainers agrees to extend the period to be greater than 3 months.
New maintainers can be added to the project by a super-majority vote of the existing maintainers. A potential maintainer may be nominated by an existing maintainer. A vote is conducted in private between the current maintainers over the course of a one week voting period. At the end of the week, votes are counted and a pull request is made on the repo adding the new maintainer to the OWNERS file.
A maintainer may step down by submitting an issue stating their intent.
Changes to this governance document require a pull request with approval from a super-majority of the current maintainers.
