Technical Steering Committee
As explained in the Zephyr project's Governance Model, the project is composed of two governing groups: administrative, and technical. The administrative leaders meet in a Governing Board to discuss and choose policies, articulate strategy, and provide guidance to the technical leaders. The technical leadership includes a hierarchy of subsystem Maintainers. The Technical Steering Committee (TSC) functions as a bridge between these groups. The TSC discusses all technical issues and makes decisions as a group on the best way to move the project towards the project's goals. All project leaders and maintainers currently must be employed by a member organization. This results in a system of governance that relies on merit and trust as well as participation and transparency.
