Hi Mark,

Thank you for raising this question. There are no plans to merge OpenTelemetry and OpenMetrics. There is an effort by OpenTelemetry on adding OpenMetrics support to the collector. Together with the Prometheus and OpenMetrics community, the workgroup was formed, with weekly meetings that move this work forward. Many non-trivial challenges are being discussed and worked on, which brings benefits to all communities. More information and meetings notes can be found here, everybody is welcome to participate and ask questions.

I am supportive of Openmetrics, but would like to raise a concern.

I am hearing more and more customers who are confused with how Opentelemetry metrics and Openmetrics relate to each other and which one they should be implementing. 
I am concerned that without a plan for CNCF to collapse Openmetrics and Opentelemetry metrics specs to a single spec we may end up in a similar situation to when we had Opentracing and Opencensus as parallel projects which each had a slightly different view on tracing.
Would be great to have guidance to customers on what is CNCF view on the relationship between the two and whether they should or should not merge and why.

Would love to understand how others in the community and TOC view this as I may not have the full picture.

Thank you for your insights,
