How many maintainers do you have, and which organizations are they from? (Feel free to link to an existing MAINTAINERS file if appropriate.)
WG Chair are maintainers of their respective repositories with additional rights to nominate others (which often happens).  Therefore we have at least 9 maintainers.  Most WG Chairs nominate several maintainers to help with the workload of the incoming code reviews.  For example, the main service repository has 17 maintainers/committers (see  A small effort/repository may only have a few maintainers.
What do you know about adoption, and how has this changed since your last review / since you joined the current Stage? If you can list companies that are end users of your project, please do so. (Feel free to link to an existing ADOPTERS file if appropriate.)

We are learning about new adopters all the time.   In addition to the companies that are participating in the construction of EdgeX, the following companies have announced (and presented) on EdgeX adoption:

  • Canonical, IOTech, HP, Thundersoft, Jiangxing Intelligence, Tibco and Accenture

Many organizations have adopted, adopting or are considering the adoption of EdgeX and related products including:

  • Wartsila, Building Systems Integrators (BSIDDC), Schneider Electric, NetEase Technology, Fanmi Technology, Mitsubishi Power

Eaton have moved further having now joined the TSC

Others who have adopted EdgeX and related products:

  • Large power supply company, large building automation company, large events and venue management company, etc

How has the project performed against its goals since the last review? (We won't penalize you if your goals changed for good reasons.)

Met or exceeded goals.  Over 8.3 million container downloads. Regular releases for 5+ years, including the first Long Term Support (LTS) made this year, indicating the stability of EdgeX to the marketplace.

What are the current goals of the project? For example, are you working on major new features? Or are you concentrating on adoption or documentation?

Working on a minor release targeted for fall 2022 with a likely major release for spring of 2023.

Looking to continue to grow the user base with more publicly referenced adopters. Support and integration to computer vision use cases remains a target with new services for ONVIF and USB Cameras released during 2022.

How can LF Edge help you achieve your upcoming goals?

We are looking at moving to GitHub Discussions as a possible replacement for Slack (currently being tested by a single work group - Device Services).  Slack has the 10K limit and is not good for historical searches. The community would welcome any feedback or experience from other LF or LF Edge projects

Join with other organizations looking to improve dev advocacy through hackathons, badging, and other programs.
