Welcome to Last week on OpenStack Dev (“Lwood”) for the week just past. For more background on Lwood, please refer here.
Basic Stats for week 14 to 20 March 2016:
- ~744 Messages (up about 9% relative to last week)
- ~258 Unique threads (up about 28% relative to last week)
A fairly normal week all considered – the uptick in traffic largely PTL election related :)
New API guidelines for review
Chris Dent writes that there are five new API guidelines ready for review by interested folk;
- Delete multiple metadata items with a single request
- Add unexpected attribute guideline
- Avoid redundancy in header values
- Added tags restrictions to the tagging guidelines
- Add version discover guideline for API microversions
Election Season Continues!
Tony subsequently announced the opening of Voting a few minutes later.
In the People and Projects section below there’s a summary of both retiring PTLs and a link to the Confirmed Candidates page for PTLs that have nominated.
Slot allocation for Newton Design Summit
Thierry Carrez kicked off a thread on Slot Allocation for the upcoming Design Summit in Austin next month.
Upcoming OpenStack Events
Unless I missed it (certainly possible in 200+ threads!) once again no new events came up on the list this week. Don’t forget the OpenStack Foundation’s comprehensive Events Page for a comprehensive list though!

PTL’s stepping down
The PTL nomination period closed during the course of last week and as a result the list of Confirmed Candidates is now available through the elections page.
By way of quick summary there was more than one candidate for Cinder, Fuel, Glance, Heat, Infrastructure, Keystone, Kolla, Magnum, Packaging-RPM and Telemetry. For all other projects the nominated PTLs are confirmed into the role unopposed.
As to the individual candidate statements, on reflection I realised it doesn’t really make much sense for me to reiterate in Lwood what is now in the official pages anyway, so please head over there if you’re curious about who has put their hand up for what :)
Further Reading & Miscellanea
Don’t forget these excellent sources of OpenStack news
The end of this week marks Easter and is a four day holiday here in Australia (Friday through Monday inclusive) At this stage I plan on actually taking Monday off, so Lwood for next week will likely go out a day late, apologies for any inconvenience caused…
