Workgroup Leads – Currently, every work group except for the Product Security Work Group and the Security Work Group is short at least one lead. More information on the lead role can be found here: community/ROLES.md at 92790376bc96f4b333ca6f36721eecaab10701d3 · istio/community · GitHub. If you have an interest in the Istio and meet the qualifications, please reach out to the respective leads.
