  3. Why Helm Hub China?
    • Helm adoption is still at early stage in Chinese market
    If search: “helm usage” in Chinese:
    1. Most information are out-of-date
    2. Few mentions by mainstream local media
    3. Very few discussion in local tech forum

  6. Discussion: GitHub Repo
    • We are now using a independent GitHub Repo to host Helm Repo China

    • Chinese developer will contribute their charts (maybe in Chinese) in to
    this GitHub Repo

    • Is this a concern for Helm community? Like, fragmentation?

    • We are fully open to merge our GitHub Repo with Helm Charts repo,
    or host/contribute this repo to Helm Github org

  7. Discussion: Helm Roadmap
    • We hope to use Helm as CD pipeline, while Helm is still kinda “monolithic”

    • Any plan to split Helm components?

    • Or, Helm CD project?

    • Hope to cooperate with Helm community closely!
