Hello OpenBMC-ers!

Your TSC has been aware of the problem of fragmentation in our project for some
time.  Fragmentation is a loose term - for the purposes of this note consider
it to be any time contributor efforts in the community are duplicated without
thought given to maintenance and/or compatibility.

To begin to address this issue the TSC is looking for volunteers to serve on a
"repository review forum" to which the TSC will initially delegate its
authority in the areas of:
- new repository creation
- placement of contributed new function into existing repositories

The TSC fully expects the scope of this forum to quickly grow into the role of
a traditional TSC providing frequent, technical oversight to project
contributors.  The current TSC will continue to serve the project in terms of
governance, advocacy and industry exposure - and likely get a rename (OpenBMC
Board? or OpenBMC Steering Committee?) in the process.

The new forum would meet periodically or at the demand of other forum members
- raise the forums combined awareness of new function under development
   (information exchange)
- build a consensus within the forum on where the function should exist
- inform the function contributor and the rest of the community of the decision

A successful forum would be a forum that can simultaneously encourage the
contribution of new and innovative solutions to existing problems without
introducing complexity to the project as a whole.

A successful forum member will have previously demonstrated a breadth of
understanding of the upstream OpenBMC codebase through:
- frequent participation in peer review, the mailing list, IRC, and Discord.
- submission of high quality designs and code to upstream OpenBMC
- a history of working with and guiding less experienced OpenBMC developers
   in a timely manner, enabling them to come up to speed quickly.

If you are interested in serving the project in this manner, please reply to
submit yourself as a candidate.

-brad, on the behalf of the OpenBMC TSC
