feature hold-back)
We recognize that the current multi-org requirement may not be the only
(or even necessarily the best) way to address those concerns
We talked about requiring three things from projects reaching Graduated
level:

1. A sustainability/longevity plan
2. A process for community feedback on the roadmap
3. Requiring "contributor ladder" process & documentation

If these three things are things that the TOC plans to require,
SIG-Contributor Strategy can work on writing guidance for them. The
"longevity" portion will require quite a bit of work, though, because
there's no real precedent for this that I know of.
