One year ago, in the frame of the OSGeo incubation process, OTB team decides
to initiate a Project Steering Committee to formalize the way that decisions
are taken. It was largely inspired by existing governance in other OSGeo
projects related to OTB like GDAL, Quantum GIS or GRASS.
This initiative aims in encouraging people and organization to join the
effort and participate more actively in the evolution and the decision
process of the library. Most people well understand this approach and join
the effort to provide high level guidance and coordination for the ORFEO
ToolBox to guarantee that OTB remains open and company neutral.

This presentation will come back on the set up of this open governance, how
it improves the way that the project progress, how it could evolve in the
It will be also the occasion to interact more largely about open governance
and decision making processes in free and open source projects.
