A task force is a group that is focused on a task with limited scope and fixed time to complete. A task force can be created by anyone in the Hyperledger community and must be proposed to and approved by the TOC.
Propose a Task Force
To propose a task force, create an issue in the TOC GitHub repository. The issue should be named “Task Force Proposal: <name of task force>”. The issue should include the following information:
- Introduction/background material
- Task to be completed
- List of deliverables or work products
- Time to complete (no more than 6 months)
- Initial participant list
The TOC will review the task force proposal first by providing comments in the issue and secondly by bringing the task force proposal to a discussion and vote in a TOC meeting.
The decision of the vote will be documented in the issue. If the task force is approved, a page in the Task Force section of the Hyperledger wiki will be created.
Reporting on Task Force Completion of Deliverables
Upon completion of the task force’s deliverables, the task force should arrange a time with the TOC chair to present the deliverables at a TOC meeting. This can be accomplished by sending an email to the TOC mailing list at email@example.com.
Requesting an Extension on Completion Date
If the task force is not able to complete the deliverables by the specified completion date, then the leader of the task force should arrange a time with the TOC chair to discuss the extension at a TOC meeting. This discussion should include information on the current status, the delays, and the expected updates to the schedule. This can be accomplished by sending an email to the TOC mailing list at firstname.lastname@example.org.
