We have one customer in China evaluated these "Flocks" services, and they want to use them as building blocks into their product, but will do it one by one. Will the repo merge impact the possibility of customer of doing so?

Thx. - cindy

I have no objection to merging these projects.  I think it makes sense, for now.  Long term I think there is value in making the "Flock" projects more separate, and maybe even stand-alone, someday.  

I think it would also be good for the teams working on these projects to hold public meetings and post agenda & minutes to the list.

I’m reaching out about an open review that proposes to merge six of the StarlingX projects into one: https://review.opendev.org/#/c/683410/

As this proposal affects 1/3 of the project teams I would like to have a community discussion about this rearrangement.

I have a few questions to discuss:

* Are all of these projects still active?
* From functionality perspective the project teams cover very different areas. What are the motivating factors behind the proposed change?
* Does this proposal help with organizing work and onboarding new contributors?

I would like to have feedback from the project team members and community members on the above questions as well as in general in response to the proposed change. Please respond to this thread and share your views.

I also checked some details and based on the StarlingX wiki the projects listed in the subject have no meetings and their wiki pages are also very brief in providing information about what they do and how to participate. I think this is something to look into in general and it should be the responsibility of all project teams and contributors.

I propose to have a liaison from every team to look into addressing this topic to make sure this is an ongoing activity along with the technical development work. What do you think about this idea?

Thanks and Best Regards,
