Best Practices Score

The best practices health score is defined as the aggregated score based on the scores computed for each segment defined under the categories Documentation, License, Best Practices, Security and Legal. In calculating the final score, each component carries its own weight.

The weight of the segment is the sum of the weights of each check in that segment. A check is the best practice identifier as defined by the CNCF community. For more information, see checks.

The best practice score is calculated only for GitHub project repositories.

The default values for every check in a segment are defined here.

For the computation logic of the scores, refer to the code.

The best practices health score is calculated for each repository that is configured or enabled for the check. For instance, only the repository Kubernetes can be enabled for computing scores, excluding the rest of the repositories.
