[VOTE] CRI-O project proposal (incubation)

Chris Aniszczyk

The CRI-O project is being proposed as an INCUBATION level CNCF project, sponsored by Brendan Burns from the TOC: https://github.com/kubernetes-sigs/cri-o

CRI-O is a stable container runtime specifically tailored for Kubernetes. A founding principal was not "reinventing the wheel" and so the project uses shared components, refined approaches tested in production, and existing battle-tested code. Further, it is tuned for performance, stability, compatibility, and adherence to standards, particularly the Kubernetes Conformance tests. In short CRI-O is a building block of a Kubernetes cluster, to facilitate the life cycle of containers as required by the Kubernetes Container-Runtime-Interface (CRI).

CRI-O was born in kubernetes-incubator (which is now deprecated) and grew to production stable there. Some have claimed since being a kubernetes project that it is already "a CNCF project", but it is often left as an after thought in brand, awareness and support as a top-level project. This proposal is effective to promote from the kubernetes incubator a project that has fully matured.

Moving CRI-O is consistent with both the Kubernetes project direction (see helm https://github.com/cncf/toc/pull/114, for example) and with other container runtimes. The containerd CRI implementation moved from the Kubernetes project to the containerd project.

Remember that the TOC has binding votes only, but we do appreciate non-binding votes from the community as a sign of support!
