Managing growth

15 Jun 2017

 Greg: We will need to forecast resource requirements for projects.
 Maven tried at one point to keep a copy of every project, but
 infra did not have resources for that. Maven needs to request
 resources from the board.

 Ross, Kevin: This might be an opportunity for directed sponsorship.
 A PMC needs to ask for this; the board has already approved the
 concept.

 Greg: A large number of INFRA tickets are for new podlings.
 Graduating projects also creates work. Infra is working on reducing
 technical debt, primarily reducing owned hardware.
 There is some work migrating projects to the Attic.
 The plan is to reduce owned hardware and migrating to the cloud.
 We expect automation of tasks related to new podlings and TLPs
 to be in place within three years.
 The current spend is $5K per project per year, but expect this
 to drop a bit in the future.

 Sam: Operations prefers bottom-up forecasting but the board
 wants to do top-down forecasts.

 Possible Action Items:

 Communicate the option for directed sponsorships to PMCs
