    Project mention: Ask r/kubernetes: What are you working on this week? | /r/kubernetes | 2023-05-22 is a project I've started about 9 months ago. This project aims to rank a comprehensive list of Kubernetes/container related OSS projects, sorted by stars. Every early morning, a GitHub action retrieves repositories from and updates the README file accordingly. Initially, I intended for it to be another "awesome_X" list, but later I realised that there were already a few similar lists for Kubernetes, and the format didn't quite fit. Nonetheless, I've diligently maintained and updated the project almost every week, ensuring it remains a valuable resource. I often rely on it personally, and I believe it can be helpful to others in search of Kubernetes tooling. To further enhance the project, I am currently exploring new features. One idea is to generate a GitHub page (instead), providing a more user-friendly interface for browsing the list. This page could include additional details about each tool, such as concise descriptions, documentation links, and even user ratings or reviews. I would also like to encourage contributions from the community. If you know of any repositories that should or shouldn't be included in the list, I warmly welcome pull requests. You can find guidelines for contributing in the project's README, which will help maintain the list's relevancy and accuracy over time.
