Welcome to Last week on OpenStack Dev (“Lwood”) for the week just past. For more background on Lwood, please refer here.
Basic Stats for the week 14 to 20 November for openstack-dev:
- ~436 Messages (up about 14% relative to last week)
- ~164 Unique threads (up about two percent relative to last week)
Traffic levels slowly coming back up post-Barcelona. I suspect the Thanksgiving Holidays in the US may be slowing things a little too with folk in that neck of the woods traveling towards the end of the week.

Oaktree – A friendly end-user oriented API layer
Monty Taylor shared some information about Oaktree – a work in progress that will provide a consistent API that works across clouds from multiple vendors. As Monty puts it “oaktree is a gRPC-based API porcelain service for OpenStack that is based on the shade library and I’d love some help in writing it.”
Early days but looks like a pretty cool endeavour and has been well received by the openstack-dev community thus far. Check it out :)
Tricircle now officially an OpenStack “Big Tent” project
Joe Huang wrote to say that Tricircle, a project that aims to provide networking automation for Neutron in multi-region OpenStack clouds, has officially been accepted as a big-tent project. Congrats to all involved!
New Release Announcement list up and running
Acknowledging Community goals for Ocata
Doug Hellmann reminded the community that quite a few teams are yet to acknowledge the community communication goals for Ocata. Anne Gentle followed up to say she and Doug had done a short video that explains this new process.
Notable Discussions – other OpenStack lists
Over on OpenStack Operators, Blair Bethwaite pointed out a live blog he was curating that details OpenStack related goings on at SuperComputer16. Melvin Hillsman posted a followup about the poll to decide the location for the Ops Midcycle on March 15 & 16 next year – off to Milano it is! :)

No tunes, but did enjoy playing a little virtual Hammond B3 during typing breaks this evening (I didn’t record this evenings noodling, but if you’re curious I’m playing the same virtual instrument here, albeit turned up to eleven…) Aforementioned CD didn’t arrive – there are downsides to being in the antipodes sometimes :/
Last but by no means least, thanks, as always, to Rackspace :)
