Thanks for the thoughts Tom. Yes one going forward option may be the ALM
PaaS. I like to your idea to bring value addition to K8S, Mesos ..etc.

But I don't think it should ALM PaaS. If it is ALM PaaS, it should be give
additional benefits than current opensource offering.   Personally I do not
like to duplicate the effort of other open source community is putting to a
project. Are these ALM PaaS missing something? Rather competing with
OpenShift, CloudFoundry (they all open source projects) ..etc  can we bring
value addition to them? Or any green field on top of all of these PaaS?
