Re: OPA to graduation

To your comment, the OPA governance model protects against one organization unfairly controlling any part of the project (including the open-policy-agent/opa repository) by allowing any maintainer (from any repository) to call for an update to the model (this is covered by the "Changes in Governance" section).
The model we have in place balances (i) the desire for experts on a repository to make decisions for that repository and (ii) for the OPA contributor community to take action if one or more organizations starts misbehaving. Sustained contributors for each repository make decisions for what goes into that repository, but if those contributors begin making decisions that are not in the interest of the broader community, the OPA governance model allows maintainers from other repositories to step in and take corrective action. The model is based on the premise that maintainers are acting in the best interest of the community, but it recognizes that exceptions can occur and accounts for that.
