One thing that came up during yesterday's call that we didn't reach a conclusion on was names for our board and tech board. Rather than take up time on this during the weekly calls, perhaps we can agree via email.

For the board itself, there are several options including:
1.a Governing Board. This is frequently used in other LF projects.
1.b Board of Directors. This is also frequently used in other LF projects.
1.c DPDK Board. This is a bit more neutral and doesn't imply that the board governs the technical aspects of the project.
1.d DPDK Marketing & CI Board. This is more specific, but is a bit misleading as the board only manages the budget for CI, not all aspects of CI.

For the technical board, the options include:
2.a Technical Board. This is the current name.
2.b Technical Steering Committee. This is the name typically used on other LF projects.

For reference, here's the naming that some other LF projects use:
FD.io (https://fd.io/sites/cpstandard/files/pages/files/exhibit_a_-_fd.io_project_by-laws.pdf): Board of Directors, Technical Steering Committee
IOVisor (https://www.iovisor.org/about/governance): Governing Board, Technical Steering Committee
OVS (http://openvswitch.org/charter/charter.pdf): (no board because there's no budget), Technical Steering Committee
ODL (https://www.opendaylight.org/bylaws): Board, Technical Steering Committee
OPNFV (https://www.opnfv.org/about/governance): Board of Directors, Technical Steering Committee

What do people think? My vote would be 1.a and 2.b, but I'm not overly concerned with names as long as we clearly define the scope of each.

I do not like 1.a, 1.b and 1.c because it is not descriptive enough.
We must avoid giving the impression that the technical part of the project
is influenced by those paying a membership.

Why not simply one these new proposals?
1.e Budget Board
1.f Financial Board

OK for both

I am not a big fan of trying to label this board as it does a bit more then just budgets or financial. It also does marketing, CI allocation and general bottle washer :-) I wish I could come up with a better name that works.

How about this then:

- DPDK Governing Committee (DGC) or DPDK Governing Board (DGB)

- Technical Steering Committee (TSC)

my $0.02 worth, does that make my a gold member :-)

I have a preference for "DPDK Governing Board" - but I agree that there
is a potential implication of control over the technical governance we
should avoid.

I see no reason to change this during the move from the name we arrived
at last year (which, if I recall correctly, was quite a long discussion).

Thanks,
Dave.

What's about "Administrative Board" in order to support the scope we are 
trying to set?
