Thanks.  I would prioritise open governance over reducing your
committers, but up to you.

I just wanted to let people know that the project has now adopted an open governance model ( as a first step. We expect to broaden the maintainers beyond Red Hat over time.

Fantastic news - congratulations.

Re quotas.  Any multi-tenant system that holds data for any length of
time faces the question of how available resources may be allocated to
tenants.  Typically a quota system is used.  If your users are single
tenant, then you don't need this.

Kafka itself is not multi-tennant. Neither messages nor topics are owned authorised entities. So although it has different retention policies for messages, they're not associated with users or tenants. Rate limiting / quotas of connected clients are features of Kafka itself, rather than being something Strimzi adds. Therefore it might be hard to separate it as a general concept.

Perhaps I misunderstood but isn't one goal of Strimzi to enable Kafka-aaS.
