Re: [VOTE] CNCF Sandbox proposal
While I share some of the concerns about the name sandbox (and no, I don’t have any better proposals :-), when considering alternatives like “launchpad” and “runway" I think that we need to be careful of overselling the amount of due diligence that may or may not have been applied to these projects by the CNCF. Although I like the intuitive cool and positive appeal of these alternative names, those do carry strong connotations of rigorous design, testing, pre-flight checks etc that occur before arriving on a runway or launchpad, which is, I think, specifically the opposite of what the sandbox is.
My understanding of the proposal is that the amount of technical or market due diligence applied before acceptance is near-zero. I think we need to state that explicitly, to set expectations correctly, and choose an appropriate name to convey that. For all it’s flaws, “Sandbox” is accurate in that respect.
