Let's put it as a discussion item for the next meeting and consider rolling it out in 2021

Thanks Chris. 

We could also require it for TOC members & SIG chairs too

Liz I have added this as a requirement per the project proposal process:

We can discuss at the next TOC meeting to vote/finalize the changes, but I think the best place to put the requirement is at the project proposal phase where we can easily check against the initial list of maintainers. In the future, we can try to do something fancy like an automated audit report based on what's in and if they have taken the course.

Just completed it (takes ~20 min) and definitely can recommend it to all who maintain projects on open source! 🤗 

It's actionable and insightful, +1 to make it mandatory.

BTW, direct training link: (it's free)

Kind Regards,

I’d like to see all project maintainers taking this at all maturity levels

Probably getting carried away here, but it would be nice if we could automate this, a bit like CLA bots: automatically flagging up anyone who’s listed in a Maintainers file if they haven’t taken the course

As a follow up from previous discussions on D&I training, we at The Linux Foundation in partnership with NCWIT are launching a new course on building inclusive open source communities that CNCF helped fund:

We should consider making this as a graduation requirement or even as part of project acceptance, food for thought as we ramp up for kubecon + cloudnativecon next week!
