Something interesting is happening in land: VMware is becoming a very (very) active contributor. Compare this last quarter with all time:

This isn’t just a blip. Over the last year VMware has upped its K8s game considerably (acquiring Heptio, most prominently, and Bitnami, most recently). While the company’s early reaction to containers was a sophist’s scoff, it has since realized it has to play the K8s game

Guess what? Savvy enterprises demand that their open source providers actually swim in that source. If they’re going to depend on VMware, rather than just supporting themselves, customers need to know that VMware has some influence within that community. Influence comes from code

I wouldn’t be surprised to see VMware and Red Hat both up their K8s contributions, perhaps one day (and soon) displacing Google as the top contributor. It’s how open source competition works. Really cool to see VMware so active

Of course, code doesn’t necessarily mean influence

No, but it’s a guarantee of no influence if you contribute no code :-)

Correct, but we are building influence as well, I will not point to stats but it’s easy to discern just by looking at our participation in the project.
