Hey everyone,

Today marks a major milestone for the Kata project and community! 

Earlier today the OpenStack Foundation (OSF) Board of Directors held an official meeting in which Kata was reviewed for approval to transition out of the pilot project phase and be confirmed as a top level project at the Foundation. 

Architecture Committee member, Eric Ernst, presented about the project and covered the areas that the Board had approved as guidelines for confirmation[1]. After the presentation[2], the Board had a number of questions for the Kata team. As the questions wrapped up, the Board decided to proceed with a vote on confirmation today and approved Kata as the first new top-level Open Infrastructure Project in the foundation.

Congrats to the entire community!

The confirmed <https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/OSFProjectConfirmationGuidelines>onfirmed <https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/OSFProjectConfirmationGuidelines> status indicates that a project has a strategic focus, well-defined governance procedures, a commitment to technical best practices and open collaboration, and an actively engaged ecosystem of developers and users.

For Kata, this is an indicator that the project is being viewed as mature and affirms that Kata is a viable solution with a sustainable community around it.

Kata first became a pilot project in December 2017, in conjunction with the OSF’s evolution from being the home for OpenStack to becoming the home of open infrastructure collaboration. Kata supports the OSF strategic focus area related to containers. More details available on the blog[3].

We’ll celebrate together at the Open Infrastructure Summit in Denver a few weeks!
