How decisions are made#
The Jupyter Notebook team follows the “Decision Making” Guidelines described in the main Jupyter governance documents.

There is no limit to the size of the team. We follow the guidelines laid out by the broader Jupyter governance model which encourages a large, highly participatory decision body:
The new governance model and decision-making guide is designed to support large, highly participatory decision-making bodies. As such, even Subprojects that have a clear decision-making body today may wish to increase the size of that body to include more contributors.
