Deis features a lightweight process that emphasizes openness and ensures every community member can be an integral part of planning for the future.
Maintainers lead the Deis projects. Their duties include proposing the Roadmap, reviewing and integrating contributions and maintaining the vision of the project.
The Deis Roadmap is a community document. While Maintainers propose the Roadmap, it gets discussed and refined in Release Planning Meetings.
Proposals and issues can be opened by anyone. Every member of the community is welcome to participate in the discussion by providing feedback and/or offering counter-proposals.
The Roadmap gets delivered progressively via the Release Schedule. Releases are defined during Release Planning Meetings and managed using GitHub Milestones which track specific deliverables and work-in-progress.
Major decisions affecting the Roadmap are discussed during Release Planning Meetings on the first Thursday of each month, aligned with the Release Schedule.
Release Planning Meetings are open to the public with access coordinated via the Deis #community Slack channel. Notes from past meetings are below, along with links to a recording of the entire meeting on YouTube.
