- Incubating and Inception levels in marketing materials

It's not a question, but just an observation of voiced 'concern' I see on many of the inception level requests, where the feedback is "where is the community support beyond company A", etc.
So redefining our "what is means to be Cloud Native" and including Open Source as part of this primary driving directive, it seems counter-intuitive to accept projects, even at an inception level if they don't strong community support.

What is your question about community support?

Alexis/Dan et all,
I appreciate the work it is to grow this foundation and ensure it lands in a healthy place, it's no small feat!
With the popularity of CNCF, it's 'endorsement' to projects is a huge success factor.
And while I know we are current revamping definitions to provide better understanding of the stages of a project, I think many in the community are concerned that outside of this, perception is reality. Honestly, if I am a potential customer and looking at a project, just having it listed (with a bunch of other projects at different levels) on the CNCF website probably instills a certain amount of confidence in the project.
The criteria between inception to graduation is well documented and understood by the TOC, but outside of that, I am not sure.
Many times it's been brought of that for instance, "community support is not sufficient for xyz project". We have agreed this is not a strict requirement of inception,
however those active in the Open Source community see this as criteria zero.
Also, do we have a good way of tracking technical concerns brought forward from the DD to the next phase? Have we considered creating and publishing a concrete timeline around each of these phases and what the plan is if projects don't meet these guidelines? I feel that many people are trying to provide good due diligence while also balancing their day jobs, so things are also getting possibly missed because the dates aren't well defined. (I know I've mentioned this to Chris so sorry to feel like a broken record here).
Would love to hear other's thoughts around this.
