Dear P4 Enthusiasts,
Please join me in congratulating the newly elected members of the P4 TST
for 2020 - 2021: Andy Fingerhut
https://wiki.opennetworking.org/display/COM/Andy+Fingerhut, Stefan Heule
https://wiki.opennetworking.org/display/COM/Stefan+Heule and Robert Soule
All three have been involved with technical work on P4 for several years,
and we are delighted that they have agreed to serve the community in a
leadership role. They have each been elected to a 2-year term and will be
responsible for overseeing and managing all the technical decisions within
the P4 project, along with the continuing members of the TST. Larry
Peterson is also joining the TST as an ex-officio member representing ONF.
If you are wondering why you didn't receive a ballot, we had 3 open slots
and 3 qualified nominees so an election was not needed.
Please also join me in thanking outgoing members Nick McKeown, Guru
Parulkar, and Jennifer Rexford for their service on the inaugural P4 TST.
Nick and Jen were the founding members of the original P4.org board and
have served the P4 community in a leadership role for the past 6 years.
Guru joined the TST last year and has played an instrumental role in
helping us navigate the transition from a grassroots project to a
professional open-source organization. We are grateful for their leadership
As the saying goes, no good deed goes unpunished... the ONF has created a
new P4 Advisory Board and appointed Nick, Guru, and Jen as founding
members, along with Amin Vahdat and me. The P4 Advisory Board will not be
involved with day-to-day technical work on P4 but will provide strategic
direction to the TST and will also serve as a liaison to the ONF Board.
P4 TST 2020 - 2021
P4 Advisory Board
These changes were all approved by the current TST and the ONF and are now
reflected in an updated P4 Charter, which is available online:
