Re: WIP: Auto-generated Cloud Native Landscape
There’s something useful about the existing category structure that may be lost with themes – are you thinking that themes might be an additional way to break out the products / projects in the landscape, or would they replace the categories entirely?
It might be interesting to allow for a few different ways to group projects (categories / sub-categories, themes, etc) and keep metadata on each project that indicates which groupings it belongs to. That would allow for more flexibility in the landscape web UI, and could start to address some issues around projects that don’t naturally fit into just a single sub-category.
Hopefully I haven’t repeated something that has already been said; I’ve read through the reference architecture mailing list backlog, but I am newer to this group.

That helps a lot, and seems like the right direction, as discussed in the last working group meeting.
I gave a bit more thought to what we discussed around “themes” - security was the canonical example of a theme. We discussed that some audiences (e.g. security auditors) might want to zoom in on a theme like that, and want to understand the landscape in that context, without irrelevant distractions. Here is a brief straw man proposal for how that might work.
I think we were also asked to come up with some other candidate themes
Here are a few proposed themes to consider:
I’m sure that others might propose more potential themes.
Hope this helps…
