  • There is an issue on the Package Maintenance repo, to track governance models and methodologies for package maintainers with the aim to help establish owners for the project, who could help maintain the code base and its packages, and share in the responsibilities as it relates to help with triag, review, and general code ownership.
  • There is an ongoing effort to avoid using "Node" and "Node's" across the Node.js org and ecosystem. Instead, the use of Node.js is encouraged.
