I kicked off a new thread on the "helping projects" topic you & Jessie have homed in on.
I think this ought to be simple:
1) Graduated & Incubated projects get lots of help & pref.
2) Sandbox get much less, and zero marketing, per the guidelines
I hope we can scale (1) in line with overall CNCF growth & budget.
I think Sandbox projects will be many, for a number of reasons that I am happy to bore everyone with. So their budget needs to be limited. They are not "favourites". They may fail to get to incubation. But, they need a neutral home & various forms of help that I think can be boxed into Categories/WGs
Incubated / Graduated projects ARE favoured. There is real DD, and TOC care here. The CNCF is making bets & should back them up. "But you say you are not a kingmaker organisation", some people complain. On the contrary - we do not pick winners, and can back more than one horse. The clear example right now is in service mesh where we see multiple high quality projects. There are and will be others.
