Thanks for sending this! Some thoughts inline, and I look forward to discussing more in person.

This came up with me as well. I think we should try to understand the motivations these companies have for placing these projects in a foundation and make sure we have places/levels in place for the broad range of projects/motivations. For example, some companies seem to be motivated by:
We should prioritize establishing a set of areas where the appropriate type of collaboration can take place for each project. CNCF has sandbox, incubating, graduation, etc. to help. Other foundations have other types of "levels".
A sign of a healthy ecosystem would be projects both inside and outside the foundation interoperating and building on each other. We should also work to dispel any notions that projects must be in the CDF to interoperate with the CDF projects. A CDF landscape would be a big help here. I think Chris said these are pretty easy to setup.
Definitely, vendor-neutral owned projects can be much more welcoming to others.
Right! I look forward to having these conversations in central, public discussions hosted by the CDF going forward. They've mostly been informal adhoc meetings so far.
A few other CDF members expressed interest in Grafeas as well. I'll follow up on this in the next couple of weeks. I think there's definitely a need for a CD-focused, secure metadata standard for interop.
