### TSC Meetings

The TSC meets regularly in a voice conference call. The meeting is run by a
designated meeting chair approved by the TSC. Each meeting is streamed on
YouTube.
The TSC meets in a voice conference call. Each year, the TSC elects a chair to
run the meetings. The TSC streams its meetings for public viewing on YouTube or
a similar service.

Items are added to the TSC agenda which are considered contentious or
are modifications of governance, contribution policy, TSC membership,
or release process.
The TSC agenda includes issues that are at an impasse. The intention of the
agenda is not to review or approve all patches. Collaborators review and approve
patches on GitHub.

The intention of the agenda is not to approve or review all patches.
That should happen continuously on GitHub and be handled by the larger
group of Collaborators.
Any community member can create a GitHub issue asking that the TSC review
something. If consensus-seeking fails for an issue, a Collaborator may apply the
`tsc-agenda` label. That will add it to the TSC meeting agenda.

Any community member or contributor can ask that something be reviewed by the
TSC by logging a GitHub issue. If consensus-seeking among TSC members fails for
a particular issue, it may be added to the TSC meeting agenda by adding the
`tsc-agenda` label.
Before each TSC meeting, the meeting chair will share the agenda with members of
the TSC. TSC members can also add items to the agenda at the beginning of each
meeting. The meeting chair and the TSC cannot veto or remove items.

Prior to each TSC meeting, the meeting chair will share the agenda with
members of the TSC. TSC members can also add items to the agenda at the
beginning of each meeting. The meeting chair and the TSC cannot veto or remove
items.
The TSC may invite people to take part in a non-voting capacity.

The TSC may invite additional persons to participate in a non-voting capacity.
During the meeting, the TSC chair ensures that someone takes minutes. After the
meeting, the TSC chair ensures that someone opens a pull request with the
minutes.

The meeting chair is responsible for ensuring that minutes are taken and that a
pull request with the minutes is submitted after the meeting.

Due to the challenges of scheduling a global meeting with participants in
several time zones, the TSC will seek to resolve as many agenda items as
possible outside of meetings using
The TSC seeks to resolve as many issues as possible outside meetings using
[the TSC issue tracker](https://github.com/nodejs/TSC/issues). The process in
the issue tracker is:

* A TSC member opens an issue explaining the proposal/issue and @-mentions
@nodejs/tsc.
* After 72 hours, if there are two or more `LGTM`s from other TSC members and no
explicit opposition from other TSC members, then the proposal is approved.
* If there are any TSC members objecting, then a conversation ensues until
either the proposal is dropped or the objecting members are persuaded. If
there is an extended impasse, a motion for a vote may be made.
* The proposal passes if, after 72 hours, there are two or more TSC approvals
and no TSC opposition.
* If there is an extended impasse, a TSC member may make a motion for a vote.
