Too many maintainers think they don’t need governance ... until something goes wrong. Undefined or inadequate governance results in a lack of transparency that causes confusion over how decisions are made, unrealistic expectations, and unresolved disagreements. The CNCF helps projects adopt good governance practices with a focus on fair and transparent governance from sandbox to incubating to graduated. This talk will cover * Why governance is important * Selecting an appropriate governance model * Templates with patterns that work well to bootstrap CNCF projects * The role of mission, values, and scope in setting expectations * Defining roles, responsibilities, processes, and procedures within your governance model * Contributor ladders to help people move into leadership positions * The governance pros and cons of contributing a project to the CNCF The audience will get practical advice about creating fair and neutral governance structures and processes for open source projects.
