Submit k3s for inclusion to CNCF as a sandbox project (github.com)

Is there a decent summary of the various k8s derivatives/distributions/etc. anywhere? I'm aware of k3s and micro-k8s and I know there are others I've forgotten and a "here's which one to consider using for what" that none of the maintainers hate would be helpful but I've completely failed to find it if it already exists.

Not a summary, but the CNFC landscape has the relevant links:

Platform - Certified Kubernetes - Installer (19)[0]

Platform - Certified Kubernetes - Hosted (45) [1]

Platform - Certified Kubernetes - Distribution (61)[2]

Even if you ignore the hosted offerings, that's still 80 different ways to install or setup a certified kubernetes cluster.

> We wanted an installation of Kubernetes that was half the size in terms of memory footprint. Kubernetes is a 10 letter word stylized as k8s. So something half as big as Kubernetes would be a 5 letter word stylized as k3s. There is no long form of k3s and no official pronunciation.

Am I the only one who is tired of all these shorthand names?
