OpenTelemetry Project News

When describing why I like working with open source projects, I often say, “Open source is for everyone” –– and I believe this! But, open source efforts live in a broader society that influences the open source experience. Structural racist realities, like implicit bias, need to be accounted for lest we see them mirrored in the OpenTelemetry project.

OpenTelemetry leadership has taken account and is currently in open discussion on ways to structurally and persistently improve diversity and inclusion efforts in the project. Follow or contribute to the conversation on PR #371.

Confronting racism in the United States and beyond is a multi-faceted challenge for individuals and institutions alike. Victoria Alexander has shared an Anti-Racism Resource Guide for those looking to learn more about being anti-racist, supporting community-led efforts, information about protests, rallies, and where to focus donation efforts.

These OpenTelemetry SIGs are looking for extra support! Open source efforts rely on developers like you – get involved with one of these implementations:

  • OTel-Rust is looking for contributors and maintainers
  • OTel-PHP is looking for contributors and maintainers
  • OTel-C++ is looking for contributors and maintainers
  • OTel-Ruby has seen a lot of contributions, but would benefit from having more dedicated maintainers
