Hey all,

My apologies for not noticing this first, but this was the incorrect list to have started the actual voting on (Usually, the nomination happens here and the voting is to be conducted on the core maintainer's list in order to respect confidentiality).

This was my mistake for not noticing right at the outset, and I apologize for that.

Matt Farina and I have consulted the governance doc, and we believe we can count these votes under the particular circumstances. But that's a loophole we'll close in a future iteration of the governance doc.

Again, super sorry for the confusion.

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-testinghelm/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.
xo, Scott
