Subject:  [cncf-toc] [VOTE] CoreDNS moving to graduation

CoreDNS has requested to move to the graduation maturity level:

The CoreDNS community was one of earlier projects that joined CNCF at the
inception/sandbox level on March 2017 (sponsored by Jon Boulle) and moved
to the incubation maturity level on Feb 2018. As of Kubernetes v1.13,
CoreDNS is the default DNS server (
and the community went under an external security audit last year sponsored
by CNCF:

The CoreDNS community believes it has fulfilled all the graduation criteria:

- Document that it is being used successfully in production by at least
three independent end users:

* SoundCloud uses CoreDNS as internal cache+proxy in Kubernetes clusters to
handle hundreds of thousands DNS service discovery requests per second.
* Infoblox uses CoreDNS in its Active Trust Cloud SaaS service, as well as
for Kubernetes cluster DNS.
* Admiral uses CoreDNS to handle geographic DNS requests for our
public-facing microservices.
* Qunar uses CoreDNS for service discovery of its GPU machine learning
cloud with TensorFlow and Kubernetes.
* Tradeshift uses CoreDNS to look up company identifiers across multiple
* AdGuard uses CoreDNS in AdGuard Home and, therefore, in production public
AdGuard DNS servers.
* Bose, Zalando, Yandex, Hellofresh, Sodimac, Kismia and many others use
CoreDNS for their production's Kubernetes Cluster:

- Have a healthy number of committers and at least two from different
organizations: 16+ maintainers: Google, Infoblox, Independent(s) - More
than 100+ contributors - and

- Demonstrate a substantial ongoing flow of commits and merged
contributions: 10+ releases since becoming an incubating project and
average about 150 PRs merged / quarter:

- Have achieved a CII badge:

- Define a governance model:
