Over the years the Open Source ecosystem has evolved community values and practices. The Kubernetes community centers kindness and inclusivity, practicing accessibility as a way of building a diverse community. While the K8s community has brought attention and change in the ecosystem, neither the values nor the practices originated there. K8s-flavored, yes, but also similar to other communities such as OpenInfra, Drupal, and the Linux distributions. In this one-act play with two practitioners, Jen breaks down successful community caretaking and stewardship through the way we run events such as KubeCon, and Karsten offers a live diff, comparing and contrasting the Jen's experience with his own and what is gathered in the Open Source Way guidebook for community management practices. Embracing storytelling, two very different literary nerds provide an overview of how community management works in the Open Source world, and an understanding of the differences and similarities to a broader, extrapolated view from a diverse community of practice.
