The Evergreen Project Board represents the interests of the Evergreen Project and is responsible for enforcing the Evergreen trademark and discussing
- Issues escalated from a committee or other subgroup in the Project that has reached an impasse but requires a decision by informed consensus.
- Issues that do not fall into the purview of any of the established committees or other subgroups, but requires a decision by informed consensus.
- Issues of strategic, as opposed to tactical, importance for the Project that require leadership and vision from above the team or subproject level to achieve
- Sensitive legal or personnel issues which require research and discussion to protect the interests of the Project.
The Board is elected by annual vote by members of the Evergreen Project, namely those who have made direct contributions to Evergreen code, documentation, or committees or those who are employed by institutions running Evergreen.
