  3. KEP work in 2021 (1.21, 1.22, 1.23):

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)

  2. What metrics/community health stats does your group care about and/or measure?

    • We don't currently measure any statistics regarding community health.
    • In the future, we'd like to understand better what areas our community needs help in, i.e. areas that are under-documented, areas with lots of bugs, etc.
  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?

    • We are adding a new in the same PR as this report.
    • As a follow-up, we need to reference in our subprojects.
  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?

  5. Does the group have contributors from multiple companies/affiliations?

    • Yes, we have contributors from Amazon, Google, VMware, and others.
  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?

    • Yes, we could use help on the extraction/migration effort, including migrating tests out of the core Kubernetes repository and into each cloud-provider repository. See kubernetes/cloud-provider#25 to get started
