The Open Air Interface project includes individuals working in a variety of roles. OSA is responsible for product management and the development process; however, the project considers contributions from any source.
This page describes the kinds of roles that interested parties can take on.
1. Technical Committee
The Technical Committee (TC) is composed of representatives of OSA Members who are technical experts and have in depth experience of the OAI code.
The TC is responsible for the following tasks:
"Contributors" are those making contributions to the OAI source code, including employees of OSA partners, as well as individual developers who are contributing to OAI on their own behalf.
There is no distinction between contributors who are employed by a partner and those who are not; all engineers use the same tools (git), follow the same code review process, and are subject to the same requirements on code style and so on.
"Developers" are another term used for "Contributors".
"Integrators" are those bringing together the component sub-systems into one system (an aggregation of subsystems cooperating so that the system is able to deliver the overarching functionality) and ensuring that the subsystems function together as a system.
