Hey SIG Apps,

I would like to draw your attention to my proposal for adding configs to ReplicaSets that allow customizing their down-scaling behavior. That is how the scheduler decides which Pods to remove when replicas are decreased.

The full proposal is outlined in the following issue:

I appreciate your comments and ideas!

PS: I am willing to present this at the next SIG Apps meeting (even though it's at 4am my time, lol)

the recording and we can always continue the discussion here.
