The Node.js project follows a Consensus Seeking decision making model.
Individuals making significant and valuable contributions are made Collaborators and given commit-access to the project. These individuals are identified by the TSC and their nomination is discussed with the existing Collaborators.
For the current list of Collaborators, see the project's README.md.
A guide for Collaborators is maintained at collaborator-guide.md.
The project is governed jointly by the Technical Steering Committee (TSC) which is responsible for high-level guidance of the project, and the Community Committee (CommComm) which is responsible for guiding and extending the Node.js community.
