Subject Re: "Powered By" (working title) section at the official Airflow Website
Date Mon, 10 Aug 2020 09:55:45 GMT
Hello everyone.

I want to resurrect the thread about adding  "Ecosystem" page to Apache
Airflow Webste. Since we are cleaning the various sources of documentation
(Mainly CWiki) I've added the issue
https://github.com/apache/airflow/issues/10274 ("Add Ecosystem page to
Airflow Website"). I'd love someone picks it up and implements as a PR to
the website (now since deploying the website fully automated so easy to add
to the website).

I invite everyone to comment on the issue when it comes to the content - I
will be happy to moderate it and include some other sources/links
that people find useful.

In case there will be any concerns about whether we should / should not
include some links we can discuss and possibly vote it here.

J.
