You started using Kubernetes. You are doing great! Then you figure out "hey if kubectl has colors probably it would be helpful for other people!" You go ahead, and open an issue in the Kubernetes repository, to figure out that there's another issue opened since 2016 about this! And with a lot of discussions! Yeah, it happens! But why does it take so long? Is this really necessary? In this talk, we will present to you how a new feature gets into Kubernetes and, most importantly, why it takes so long! We are going to pass through some simple scenarios to understand what is this review process, what problems were caught in some real life feature requests reviews, and also other examples of features that were promoted and now became a problem, trying to understand why they reached this status! Join us and learn a bit more about the enhancement process of Kubernetes!
