Re: Public comment period for Ambassador


Daniel Bryant <daniel.bryant@...>
 

Hi Joe, Matt, many thanks for your comments.

@Matt, I remember you raising this in the DD document comments, and @Chris Aniszczyk suggested this would be acceptable under the trademark policy (e.g. "X for Envoy"). He suggested that we use a short name like "IC4E" in the docs and new website that would be created for the project.

We originally looked to ingress-nginx as inspiration, since the community seems to have accepted this as a name even though it’s well-understood it’s not “official”. We also wanted to with a descriptive name instead of an abstract name, because we thought it would be easier for people to understand.

Best wishes,

Daniel

I agree and I raised a similar concern at some point but I don't remember the outcome here. @Daniel Bryant?

What is the new name?  The name "ambassador" is all over the docs and I'd expect to see this reframed around the new name.

I object to the name "Ingress Controller for Envoy Proxy” as that also describes Contour.  This will create confusion and will be easily misread as "THE Ingress Controller for Envoy Proxy" and will violate the "no kingmakers" value of the TOC.

All,

Ambassador is applying for incubation status:
DD has been reviewed by myself and SIG Network and we are supportive. We are now calling for the 2 week public comment period prior to the vote.

Thanks,
Matt
