Re: CNCF SIG "App Delivery"

Doug, the only doc I'm aware of is the proposed SIGs:


But I think that description is not actually universally agreed upon yet, hence this discussion.

App Dev, Ops & Testing PaaS, Serverless, Operators, CI/CD, Conformance, Chaos Eng, Scalability and Reliability measurement etc.

At the risk of over-repeating myself, I think it's important that for any given technology-related question that a user comes to us with, we should only essentially have two answers:

Either:

1) That's not in scope of the CNCF.  Please find an answer elsewhere.

or 

2) Please speak to CNCF SIG X - they cover that area.

I do not think we should ever have to answer:

X) Yes, the CNCF considers that in scope, but we don't actually have a place for you to go and discuss that.

Is there a doc that gives a more detailed explanation of what "App Delivery" is meant to cover?
I honestly do not know what it means for both PaaS and Serverless to be out of scope when I believe all of them are (probably) based on containers and therefore will leverage container images as part of "App Delivery".


thanks

scope for CNCF SIG App Delivery.

I know in general Kubernetes has tried to stay unopinionated "up the stack" but it seems unless we define an "application" in a more formal way, having App Delivery as a SIG is premature. Am I making sense?
