Magma strives to operate under an open governance model that encourages contribution and participation from all interested organizations and developers. Technical decisions are made by technical contributors and a representative Technical Steering Committee, as detailed in the project Technical Charter. The community is committed to diversity, openness, and encouraging new contributors and leaders to rise up.

Technical Steering Committee

The Technical Steering Committee (TSC) is comprised of 8 members who are responsible for architectural decisions and making final decisions if the Committers cannot come to an agreement. The TSC will will develop and approve additional governance rules and procedures for the project, as detailed in the Technical Charter.

The exact size and model for the TSC may evolve over time based on the needs and growth of the project, but the governing body will always be committed to openness, diversity and the principle that technical decisions are made by technical contributors.

Any individual may hold multiple roles simultaneously such as being a Maintainer and a member of the TC.
