The Performance Points Committee is a panel of well-versed players and developers who facilitate and approve updates to the performance points and star rating algorithms. Their goal is to help osu! developers push changes faster and with more community coordination.
The osu! panel was first announced to the public through the November 2021 Performance Points & Star Rating Updates news post in response to a community survey held earlier that year.
The osu!mania panel was formed 22 April 2022 in response to another community survey regarding performance points and star rating in osu!taiko and osu!mania held earlier that year, as well as in anticipation of a surge in active development effort, starting with a change in difficulty calculation for hold note releases in osu!mania.
The osu!taiko panel was formed on 1 May 2022 in response to the same survey as above, with plans for major changes to the star rating algorithm.
