Re: Results from Sandbox Inclusion Meeting, April 26
I’m not on the TOC, so I’m not sure if there were specific concerns about Matos raised during the meeting, but I do have a few suggestions for you based on our work within TAG Contributor Strategy.
I recommend having a look at some of the TAG Contributor Strategy resources about Contributor Growth here: https://contribute.cncf.io/maintainers/community/contributor-growth-framework/
I also recommend completing some of the TODO items in your Contribution Guidelines documentation: https://github.com/cloudmatos/Matos/blob/main/docs/CONTRIBUTION_GUIDELINES.md
Right now, I think most people would find it challenging to contribute without instructions for building Matos locally and running tests. The easier you can make it for contributors to get started, the easier it will be to recruit contributors.

Hello Amye and TOC,
Thanks for the details below on our Sandbox project entry of Matos.
Decision: Matos: Reapply in January '23 showing more robust community.
We submitted our entry in December'21 and got selected at the end of April'22 to be reviewed but we were informed to reapply in Jan'23.
I completely understand that there are so many applications that want to be part of the Sandbox project and that's why it's taking time to be reviewed but my understanding is that the Sandbox project will provide better visibility to the community to participate in the open source project.
How do we build the community without being part of the Sandbox or having better visibility?Would you please share any recommendations on how to build a robust community?
I appreciate your help here!
