Backstage continues to take big strides towards becoming a community controlled CNCF sandbox project. This week, the project joined peers like Helm, Envoy Proxy and Kubernetes in adopting an open governance model.
The open governance
of a project determines who has influence and control beyond what is legally required in an open source license.
Practically speaking, this makes it easy to see who maintains Backstage, what their responsibilities are and why they deserve those responsibilities.
Anyone can become a maintainer. To become a maintainer, you need to demonstrate commitment to the project, the ability to write good code and collaborate effectively with the Backstage team. There is also now a clear nomination process for new maintainers.
