Re: Question on sandbox projects

OK, I’m suggesting the opposite – three clearly separate lists – graduated, incubating, sandbox

If I’m the only one who feel strongly on this I’m happy to step down off my soapbox.  But I remember other TOC members having similarly strong feelings on the matter.  Brian Cantril, Camille and Alexis come to mind?

We can annotate each listing with the project maturity level, that's my proposed solution moving forward.

This topic has already come up several times in the ToC.  We explicitly decided that a very clear distinction should always be drawn between sandbox, incubation and graduated projects in external-facing communication.  It doesn’t sound like an alphabetical list mixing all of the projects together meets that goal.

Extract from sandbox.md, which I think needs to be strengthened to meet the above goals.

Some key points:

  • Sandbox projects will be listed separately from other CNCF projects (cncf.io/sandbox)
  • They will not be prominently listed at our events or issued a press release

I don't see an issue with listing the projects in alphabetic order outside that it should be a series of checkboxes instead of radio buttons (we will fix that soon).

The TOC list is meant for technical discussions so if you have something you'd like to change about the CFP form, please email events@... for suggestions and we can have a discussion there.

Thanks.

This is a question more for CNCF staff based on the marketing expectations of sandbox projects:

I'm assuming you mean the alphabetical list of CNCF projects?

Hi all,
  While creating a CFP for Kubecon/Seattle I noticed that sandbox projects get first level choices in the Kubecon CFP. Does this apply to any sandbox project? Will the CNCF continue with this model if we have many sandbox projects?
