The Electron governance system is comprised of Working Groups that oversee different aspects of the Electron ecosystem, and an Administrative working group that functions to resolve conflicts between them.
Oversees the projects that make Electron app development easier.
Oversees all release branches, and tooling to support releases.
Oversees upgrades of upstream dependencies; specifically Chromium and Node.
Proactively ensures the Security of Electron as a project, responds to incoming incidents, and oversees rollout of fixes.
The Administrative Working Group oversees the entire governance and project.
- A maintainer is anyone who plays an active role in governance.
- A collaborator is active in the community, but not in governance.
- A participant is anyone who is a maintainer or collaborator.
- A working group is a group of maintainers that is formed to take responsibility for certain aspects of the Electron project. Normally these groups will meet regularly but in some cases will only meet as required to fulfill their responsibilities.
- A chair leads a working group.
All Working Groups have these core responsibilities:
- They shall decide for themselves, and publicly post, their rules, e.g. how decisions are made, when meetings are held, and who may attend.
- They shall select a chair to represent the group.
- They shall keep meeting notes, including agenda items, discussion points, and outcomes for everyone to review.
- They shall be collaborative and work in good faith with other Working Groups.
