Docker has made Compose Spec open source. It is looking for maintainers for the project to help it expand its Kubernetes footprint.

In a blog post, Docker senior product manager Ben De St Paer-Gotch said that the new community will be run with open governance with input from all interested parties. It will allow to  create a new standard for defining multi-container apps that can be run from the desktop to the cloud.

Till now the community listed on the spec’s website consists of Docker and Microsoft. De St Paer-Gotch wrote that  Docker was working with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft “and others in the open source community” to extend the Compose Specification to “more flexibly support cloud-native platforms like Kubernetes and Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) in addition to the existing Compose platforms.”

Looking for maintainers

De St Paer-Gotch added that Docker intends to submit the spec to an open source foundation to further enhance the level playing field and openness. Docker had introduced the compose tool for defining and running multi-container Docker applications in 2013. At Github, De St Paer-Gotch added that it was looking for maintainers for the newly open project.
