A Practical Guide to Growing Your Open Source Project: Part 1 – Contributors

Advanced tip: have a way for approved contributors to re-trigger CI. For example, Kubernetes, Kubeflow, and minikube use a tool called prow to run tests. Prow comes with a prow-bot that can accept different commands, automatically tagging issues or rerunning specific tests. Not for small projects, but this can alleviate maintainer headaches caused by trivial busy work.

Then there were some contests/activities put together at our contributor summit that were goose-themed.

What are some alternatives?
kind - Kubernetes IN Docker - local clusters for testing Kubernetes
Protobuf.NET - Protocol Buffers library for idiomatic .NET
upb - a small protobuf implementation in C
protozero - Minimalist protocol buffer decoder and encoder in C++
e2e-framework - A Go framework for end-to-end testing of components running in Kubernetes clusters.
