BOINC project governance

BOINC is a community-based open-source project. Anyone can contribute to BOINC, and there are many ways to contribute. People who consistently contribute are able to participate in the project's decision-making processes.

BOINC's governance structure is described here.

Project Management Committee

Project decisions are generally made by community consensus. To manage this process, and to resolve conflicts when they occur, there is a Project Management Committee (PMC) consisting of community members who have consistently contributed to the project. Current PMC members are:
