TEI Technical Council


The TEI Technical Council is responsible for the development and maintenance of the TEI Guidelines and other TEI systems and resources. It recommends, evaluates, and implements new features and modifications of existing features, and supervises the overall development of each new version of the Guidelines. At the TEI annual members' meeting, the Council presents a report on current work, and minutes are available from the meetings of the Council as well. The archives of the TEI Technical Council mailing list are public accessible and ongoing and past work can be seen on the bug and feature request trackers on the TEI's SourceForge site.

The TEI Technical Council consists of eleven members elected to staggered two-year terms by the TEI membership at the Annual Meeting. The Council meets once or twice a year in person, and holds a telephone conference call roughly every other month. The TEI Council sometimes uses the TEI Council Wiki Page to organize agendas or other information relating to its meetings.
