Get Involved

There is a lot to do! If you are interested in getting involved, please join the mailing lists and attend the community meetings. If you're interested in contributing to a specific part of the project, please join the appropriate special interest group (SIG). Details for all of these items are below. We are a friendly, collaborative group and look forward to working together!

Governing Bodies

Both committees meet regularly, and the respective meeting notes are publicly available in the GC meeting notes and the TC meeting notes Google Docs. If you want to check out the recordings, head to the Governance Committee YouTube playlist.

Communication

Discussions

We use GitHub discussions for most communications. Please join us there!

For those who are brand new to OpenTelemetry and want to chat or get redirected to the appropriate place for a specific question, feel free to join the CNCF OpenTelemetry Slack channel. If you are new, you can create a CNCF Slack account here.

Calendar

The shared community calendar contains all public OpenTelemetry meetings, including weekly SIG meetings, monthly community meetings, etc. You can access it via:

You can also receive calendar updates by joining our calendar updates Google Group.

Mailing Lists

List Name Signup Membership Write Permissions Read Permissions Notes
cncf-opentelemetry-community@lists.cncf.io Here anyone GC and TC anyone
NotesThe community mailing list is for anybody who wants to monitor the latest news from the project. It is used to send updates on community meetings and announcements about new projects and SIGs. There is minimal moderation for a new user to reduce spam, and new users are approved after one post.
cncf-opentelemetry-contributors@lists.cncf.io Here anyone anyone anyone
NotesThe discussions mailing list is for anyone who is interested in contributing to OpenTelemetry or has questions (related to the contribution, technical issues,etc) they’d like to discuss. Will be used to announce updates related to how the project is being developed and ask general contribution questions related to the contribution processes. No approval is required to join.
cncf-opentelemetry-tc@lists.cncf.io N/A TC anyone members
NotesUsed by the OpenTelemetry Technical Committee for internal communication. This mailing list should be used sparingly as we strive to keep all communication public. It only should be used to contact the Technical Committee with questions that cannot be discussed publicly on GitHub, GitHub discussions, or the community or contributors' mailing lists.
cncf-opentelemetry-governance@lists.cncf.io N/A GC anyone members
NotesUsed by the OpenTelemetry GC for internal communication. Additionally, contact the GC for questions that cannot be discussed publicly on GitHub, GitHub discussions, or other mailing lists. For instance, members could use this for issues related to improper applications of our community membership guidance.
cncf-opentelemetry-comms@lists.cncf.io Here GC and open for anyone anyone anyone
NotesMailing list to notify and request reviews of upcoming announcements, or request a post on the OpenTelemetry Twitter account or other public channels.

License

All OpenTelemetry projects are shipped under the permissive Apache 2.0 license as CNCF IP Policy dictates. This blog post explains the reasoning behind choosing this license. Refer to CONTRIBUTING.md for details on code attribution.

Logos and Brand Guide

The OpenTelemetry logos and brand guide can be found in the CNCF artwork repository. In addition, a Google Slides template is also available.

Special Interest Groups

We organize the community into Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to improve our workflow and more efficiently manage a community project. While meetings are expected to happen regularly, they are subject to contributors' availability and may be rescheduled or changed at time. Check our public calendar and SIG-specific GitHub discussions for meeting changes and cancellations. All meetings happen over Zoom, are recorded, and available on YouTube, and have a meeting notes document.

Please do not hesitate to contact SIG owners if the proposed time of the meeting or tools used is unavailable for you. For instance, it is a good practice to alternate morning/evening meetings once SIG has representatives from 3 largely distinct timezones. The best way to report it and suggest an alternative is to file an issue on this repository or discuss it in SIG-specific GitHub discussions.

Note: all meetings use the same passcode: 77777. This is embedded into all calendar Zoom links.
