Re: [VOTE] CNCF Sandbox proposal

It's a good callout, but I think it makes my point even stronger.

"The Sandbox is a Subversion repository for Commons committers to function as an open workspace for sharing and collaboration."

I think we are creating confusion by calling it that. It isn't an open workspace, it requires limited TOC support, which seems clearly intended to nuture possible projects towards the next stage but with a lower bar. We might ALSO need a sandbox. That seems less clear.

FWIW, I believe the inspiration for sandbox came from the Apache project, which uses the same term.

As long as we are playing around with names in a non-blocking way, might I add to the list "greenhouse"?
In favor of this idea it is more aligned to selective nuturing things as they start to grow, rather than playing around and experimentation - "sandbox".
