Self nomination to help maintain helm/helm
Hi again everyone 👋
Since last week's Helm dev call, I planned to self nominate to help with helm/helm triage via the new Triage role. I've also already been wanting to volunteer time to help with helm/helm repo maintainer duties for a while now.
If I understand the Triage Maintainer HIP and Governance correctly, I would only need to self nominate as a core maintainer to be able to help with both of these. I'm I need to self nominate for the triage maintainer role too, please lmk 🙂
I've been on the Helm team since 2017. I'm a Helm Org maintainer, and Charts maintainer (the team who oversaw the now archived helm/charts, as who continues to maintain charts automation and tooling such as helm/chart-testing, helm/chart-releaser, and the Helm Charts GitHub actions in this working demo). However while I have contributed a bit to Helm core in the past, it's been a while and I have never been a maintainer of the helm/helm repo.
I'm currently on the DX team at Weaveworks, and help maintain other CNCF community projects such as Flux, and OpenGitOps, and co-chair the GitOps Working Group under App Delivery TAG.
In addition to other helm/helm duties, I'd like to help us keep prioritizing the Helm SDK as the Helm project continues to evolve. I've been spending time with k8s controller-runtime as a step toward helping more with the Flux Helm Controller, which is an example of a project that makes full use of the Helm's SDK. So I will already be a more active SDK end user, as well as be more active helping support others who use Helm's SDK.
I'm finally in a role that can support me doing some of this, and happy to help with helm/helm maintenance however I can if current maintainers think it makes sense.
