I think the biggest concern is that Buoyant continues to dominate development given that other companies are generally making small patches rather than becoming major contributors. Chart:

    FWIW that article is not 100% correct. Linkerd ships with a control plane (Namerd). This is how these companies are controlling routing policy across Linkerd instances.

    Different projects make different design tradeoffs.

    Also, these 2 projects aren't directly comparable.

    This article explains the difference pretty well:

      CNCF allows for competing projects, see our TOC principles for more information on this:
      https://github.com/cncf/toc/blob/master/PRINCIPLES.md#no-kingmakers--one-size-does-not-fit-all

      Istio currently isn't an official CNCF project but has been invited to formalize a project proposal.

      For the merits of one project over another, I'd advise you to speak to the respective project communities for that information.

      Hi Chris,
      Personally, I would like to get clarification of competing component: linkerd vs istio. I learnt for example one company I met in KubeCon converting from linkerd to istio.

      [cncf-toc] [VOTE] linkerd inception project review 2018

      Hey TOC and community, we are requesting a vote to keep linkerd (https://github.com/linkerd/linkerd) as an inception project for another year based on their presentation yesterday. Here are some stats shared yesterday from the linkerd community:

      * 60+ contributors; 50+ releases (2--4 week cadence); 3400+ GH stars
      * 1.5m+ Docker Hub pulls; 5--10 billion requests a day
      * 1400+ Slack members
      * 40+ companies using Linkerd in production. Public ones include Monzo, CreditKarma, Salesforce, Expedia, BigCommerce, NCBI, PayPal, Taboola, FOX, and AOL
      * Powers the Human Genome Project!


      Please vote +1/-1 (remember that the TOC has binding votes only, but we do appreciate non-binding votes from the community as a sign of support).

      Also note that every inception project has to be reviewed on an annual basis to decide whether it will continue to be a CNCF project or potentially graduate to another level. We will have another discussion in the near future about moving/graduating linkerd to another level, along with other CNCF projects.

      Thanks!
