Istio Working Groups

Most community activity is organized into working groups.

Working groups follow the contributing guidelines although each of these groups may operate a little differently depending on their needs and workflow.

When the need arises, a new working group can be created, please post to technical-oversight-committee working group if you think a new group is necessary.

The working groups generate design docs which are kept in a Team Drive. Anybody can access the team drive for reading and commenting. To get access simply join the istio-team-drive-access@ group. Once you've done that, head to Team Drive and behold all the docs.

The current working groups are:

Group Design Docs Discussion Forum Slack Channel Meeting Notes Meeting Link Meeting Recordings Description

Environments Folder Forum #environments Notes Hangouts Meet YouTube Raw VM support, Hybrid Mesh, Mac/Windows support, Cloud Foundry integration
