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 29 August to 4 September for openstack-dev:
- ~491 Messages (up about 35% relative to last week)
- ~181 Unique threads (up adbout 12% relative to last week)
After a quiet couple of weeks list traffic was back in force, traffic starting to build ahead of the next release and summit. Emails about Summit room/space assignment and end of release Feature Freeze Request exceptions contributed as did a couple of longer technically oriented threads.
Notable Discussions – openstack-dev
Tristan Cacqueray reminded the list that September and October are the period over which OTL and TC elections are held. More details to follow of course, in the meantime he invited questions back to the thread if more general/public in nature or to Tony Breeds, Nate Johnston or himself if more private in nature.
OpenStack Summit App Beta testers sought
Jimmy McArthur from the OpenStack Foundation put out a call for people to beta test the app for the upcoming summit. They’re after both iOS and Android users.
An update on the InfraCloud
Ricardo Carrillo Cruz posted an update on the status of the InfraCloud – as he neatly describes it “…essentially a bunch of hardware donated by HPE to the project to run an OpenStack cloud for CI testing…” More information in Ricardo’s post or here.
