Hi Saad

Speaking personally, it would be great to have you as a TL on the CNCF Storage SIG. 

Regarding your other questions around SIG scope, have you read this yet?

That spells out in broad strokes what the responsibilities of CNCF SIGs are in general.  What I have undertaken to do is write up a draft charter of what exactly this means for the CNCF Storage SIG.  We can then review and  finalize this draft with the TOC.  It would be great to have your input.

Hi CNCF Storage WG,

Following up on the CNCF Storage WG meeting this morning: I'm considering throwing my hat in to the ring as a possible TL for the proposed CNCF Storage SIG. I'm currently Co-chair/TL of SIG Storage.

That said, I'd first like to understand what this new CNCF SIG will own?

The Kubernetes Storage SIG, for example, has clear ownership of the Kubernetes volume sub-system. This, CNCF storage workgroup, so far has produced whitepapers on the storage landscape, surveyed users, and hosted presentations from 3rd party storage projects. While all valuable, these are short term tasks.

My goal here is to make sure we act intentionally with a clear mission and purpose. A group without something to own will, at best, waste time, and, at worst, cause unnecessary conflict. To that end, I want to make sure the SIG has an obvious, long-term ownership of something concrete.

Thoughts? What do we think will be the long term sustainability strategy for this new SIG? What will it own?
