Board and Governance Model

The three founding members of the IX-API AMS-IX, DE-CIX and LINX have one seat in the IX-API board each. The board reviews the recommendations and the feedback from IX customers or participating IXs (members) and decides on how to develop and evolve the IX-API. Decisions are made on mutual agreement.

Beginning in Summer 2019, the IX-API Board is defined as stated above. Every two years, an election will be organized, and the Board can be extended in the future if needed.

You can submit feedback or proposals on how to enhance the IX-API specification via the gitlab issue tracker at any time. The better and the more detailed the description of the proposal is, the easier it is to select it.
