Re: CNCF SIGs Proposal

Li, Xiang

Thanks for putting this together! I have a few questions and comments on the proposal.


1. Does every existing CNCF project need to be assigned to a SIG?
2. Does every candidate project proposal need to be prepared with a SIG?


I would like to see the SIG responsibilities explicitly include helping young projects to grow and thrive (sandbox and early incubation projects). For example, each sandbox project get assigned one or two mentors from the SIG. The SIG tech lead helps on the roadmap and governance structure for sandbox projects.

As the proposal mentions SIG retirement, shall we also mention the split/merge of SIGs? For example, the core and applied architecture SIG is kind of a umbrella SIG, especially the applied architecture part. I can image that the ML/big data area might need its own SIG as it grows.
