  1. Can you please clarify your maintainer diversity? i.e. Are all maintainers from the same employer?

    1. It helps if you list your maintainers and contributors directly.  Thanks!

  2. Dan Middleton Hart Montgomery I've added the list of contributors and maintainers. 

    Thank you!

  3. Do you have an idea how many active users there are for Explorer?
    Any known "production" uses?

    1. No we don't have any ideas about active user count, but pull count of docker image is constantly growing. It's about to reach 2 millions.

      In the last Global Forum, I saw some sessions sharing use cases or services which are including Explorer as one of their components
