Jessie & Matt
Thank-you for raising and elaborating on the topic of how CNCF helps projects.
The topic was aired (again) at the last GB offsite, whose slides were shared a couple of months ago. Here they are again as ref: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1BFEUAnbsboyRx9qh3jyRjN-V7ukZtA9-OTjIbknUBn4/edit#slide=id.g3e55b0b2a9_0_0
Personally I do not want "CNCF could do more to help projects" to be chiselled on my gravestone. I think the TOC, Contributors and project leads can ALL show some direction here, and I think we have to do so.
And so - Jessie & Matt & anyone else!
Please could you help me & Chris do something more about this.
Let's (again) make a list of what we think Incubated & Graduated projects really need, by talking with the project leads & others. This list needs to be in a shared public doc. Not everyone wants the same things, but there are themes.
* docs & project management
* community management
* project services (hosting, CI, etc)
* github wrangling
* community / contributor summits
* AR/PR help (esp: for projects that don't have 1-2 companies driving them)
* maintainer psychotherapy & creche ;-)
