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 7 to 13 March 2016:

  • ~683 Messages (down about 12% relative to last week)
  • ~202 Unique threads (down about 9% relative to last week)

A quieter week than last and relatively little traffic that seemed a fit for Lwood, however with PTL nominations opening up there was some interesting traffic related to that, summarised below.

Notable Discussions

New API guidelines for review

Chris Dent writes that there are two new API guidelines ready for review by interested folk;

Election Season!

Tristian Cacqueray noted early in the week that both PTL and TC elections are coming up in March/April respectively.

A few days later Tony Breeds followed up with the formal notification of the opening of Nominations for OpenStack PTLs.

In the People and Projects section below there’s a summary of both retiring PTLs and PTL Candidates.  It’s worth noting that at the time of writing Glance, Horizon, Murano, Nova, Telemetry and QA appear to not have continuing PTLs or new nominees.  Of course it’s early days too :)

Stale Specs…

Mike Perez pulled together a useful summary of cross-project Specs that appear to have gone stale.  While the onus is typically on the original author to revive them, it can be an opportunity for other interested parties to assist.

At a quick glance there’s a fairly wide range of Specs in there, so if you’ve some spare cycles… :)

Upcoming OpenStack Events

Unless I missed it (certainly possible in 200+ threads!) 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!
