RFC: What do projects need to succeed?

Matt Klein

Hi TOC community and GB,

Over the past several weeks I have been working with Michelle and Brandon to create an overview document that aims to clarify both what services projects need to succeed as well as the different funding options available to obtain those services.

Our goal is to start a community and GB discussion that will allow us to:

  • Prioritize project needs to enable better tracking by the TOC, GB, and community.

  • Create a shared perspective on how project funding is prioritized and evaluated by the foundation/GB.

  • Establish a plan to ensure graduated projects have all their P0 needs met by the end of 2019.

  • Discuss the cost of P0 services in 2019 to plan for covering P1 and P2 services in 2020.

The first step to set the foundation for these discussions is to agree on a set of needs for each project which we’ve laid out in the overview document with feedback from the maintainers of the CNCF projects. We request that you review the overview document and add your input. We look forward to your discussion and comments over the coming weeks as well as in-person at OSLS next week for those present.


Matt, Michelle, and Brandon
