Hi all! I have just received the invitation to the new 7th Nov announcement, but somehow I fell quite disconnected to it. Like in my mind, Meltano was a thing, and now it's something quite different with the same name. I used to think meltano as an open source platform to cover all stages of my own data lifecycle. The new announcement page feels like: Hey, has someone contrated you to build an AI tool for them? Meltano is the easiest way to do this kind of job for them! (maybe there is not such a random channel to talk about this, so please let me know)
