Thank-you. Do you think the Sandbox write-up is sufficiently clear on
that point? (I think it is, but keen to get this right).
We are intentionally lowering the bar so I am keen on "Sandbox".
IMO, secondly: we are making Sandbox somewhat qualitatively different
from Incubation, as opposed to quantitatively.

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.

FWIW, two ideas I've fiddled with recently: Launchpad or Runway

As a co-author of this doc I want to endorse the direction as stronglyI think it's a good direction to take.
as possible. If you feel you may want to vote -1, please do so, but
ideally so that we can improve the doc.
As per the discussion in the doc, the name has connotations which are
contrary to the intended meaning. That being said, I couldn't come up
with a better name; back then or in the last two days; neither could
Long story short: No need to block on this; the improved process far
outweighs any potential naming confusion.
