Why is this project named “Baikonur”?

Baikonur project name comes from Baikonur Cosmodrome, a spaceport located in Kazakhstan known for launching the first artificial satellite and the first human spaceflight. Hence, project logo is a space rocket.

The reason why we chose a space theme in the first place is quite simple - we followed Ansible Galaxy and GitHub Universe.

Is this project limited to Terraform Modules?

Absolutely not. Although Baikonur Project started as a platform for open sourcing internally used Terraform Modules, we have been creating Python libraries, CLI tools, and we are preparing to publish our infrastructure Knowledge Base.

Do I have to be a CyberAgent employee to become a contributor/maintainer/core member?

You do not have to. :)
