    Hey Linus,

    When we started designing distributed tracing support in our brokers, we were aligned with whatever OTEL has defined for the messaging semantic conventions. So in short, we dont have a vendor specific semantic convention since it's still early stages and ver experimental.

    For example, OTEL already changed the path of their documentation on the repo you referenced above! (its now under docs/messaging instead of semantics...) . And another thing to point, you can see that the status of the semantics is experimental for both the overall messaging semantic and the vendor specific (kafka) semantics.

    We will also have more detailed documentation on the conventions so stay tuned

    You can find our updated documentation on our OTEL span fields here! Hope this helps.

    Hello,

    I pretty much aligns with my internal draft for spans (which I can now delete 😎).

    Thank you!
