[openstack-dev] [election][tc] Opinion about 'PTL' tooling

In my candidacy , I mentioned that the TC should provide more tools to help the PTLs at their duties, for example to track community health.
I have questions for the TC candidates:
- What is your opinion about said toolkit? Do you see a purpose for it?
- Do you think said toolkit should fall under the TC umbrella?
After my discussion with Rico Lin (PTL of the Heat project, and TC candidate) yesterday, I am personally convinced that it would be a good idea, and that we should have those tools: As a PTL (but also any person interested to see health of projects) I wanted it and I am not alone. PTLs are focusing on their duties and, as a day is only composed of so few hours, it is possible they won't have the focus to work on said tools to track, in the longer term, the community.
For me, tracking community health (and therefore a toolkit for the PTLs/community) is something TC should cover for good governance, and I am not aware of any tooling extracting metrics that can be easily visible and used by anyone. If each project started to have their own implementation of tools, it would be opposite to one of my other goals, which is the simplification of OpenStack.
Thanks for reading me, and do not hesitate to ask me questions on the mailing lists, or in real life during the PTG!
