Project health

  1. What areas and/or subprojects does your group need the most help with? Any areas with 2 or fewer OWNERs? (link to more details)

    • Growing additional reviewers and approvers, also see no. 4 below.
  2. What metrics/community health stats does your group care about and/or measure?

    • Open untriaged issues and PRs
  3. Does your help new contributors engage with your group specifically by pointing to activities or programs that provide useful context or allow easy participation?

    • It's up-to-date.
  4. If your group has special training, requirements for reviewers/approvers, or processes beyond the general contributor guide, does your document those to help existing contributors grow throughout the contributor ladder?

    • We’re working with SIG-CLI on starting a monthly review club, details to be announced soon.
  5. Does the group have contributors from multiple companies/affiliations?

  6. Are there ways end users/companies can contribute that they currently are not? If one of those ways is more full time support, what would they work on and why?
