Subject [Maturity Model] similar community efforts

There are two initiatives that spring to mind (and I'm sure I've come
across more, but can't recall them right now).

1. Make a README - https://www.makeareadme.com/
2. Keep A Changelog - http://keepachangelog.com/

*I have a feeling there are things to pick out of those, that are
maturity-model centric, and worth adding to the APMM.  *

Generally, I like this initiative. Sorry I'm a couple of years late to the
party! My first proper job was in 1989, and I was told of the CMM
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capability_Maturity_Model> in week one. Of
course, as a dev org we were not ranked anywhere on it and didn't fit
anyway. CMMI
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capability_Maturity_Model_Integration> came
some years later with the same realization for the company I was in at the
time. By 2001 or so, CMMI had Agile aspects retrofitted Agile (it was
claimed). We would gradually see other less prominent maturity models come
into being, and none at all would rule the industry. Perhaps thankfully.
Instead I think we worry about methodologies. SAFe
<http://www.scaledagileframework.com/> and LeSS <https://less.works/> worry
me, and I mourn the fact that there feels like there is less XP going on
now than there was in the early 2000's. I digress...
