It would be an interesting forum topic for the upcoming Denver summit to understand where we are with Telemetry and potential approaches for the future (Is the Telemetry project the way forward? Is Monasca an potential replacement? Are there alternative approaches which the community should be considering?, ...)

It's not clear to me what we should be recommending for a new cloud deployment as regards this functional area.

    I agree, although it is a little concerning that the contributor base
    for the project is so small.
    I am excited to have new contributors pick the project up, so thank you
    for volunteering!
