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 12 to 18 December for openstack-dev:
- ~413 Messages (up about 36% relative to last week)
- ~134 Unique threads (up about 30% percent relative to last week)
Traffic levels bounced back up again, but the overall trend is towards quieter – it’s been suggested a graph might be a nice thing to do and will look into doing just such a thing.
This is the final Lwood for 2016 – I won’t be putting one together on 26 December 26 or 2 January. Normal service will resume on 9 January. I take this opportunity then to wish you and yours the very best for the upcoming festive season however and wherever you might celebrate it, and wish you all the best for 2017 – Hugh :)

Lwood Feedback Survey
My thanks to those readers who have already provided feedback through the survey I mentioned in last week’s Lwood. If you haven’t already done so and would like to, I’d welcome your thoughts.
Thus far the feedback has been very positive, thank you, it seems this modest effort does indeed fill a useful niche for folk in among the other sources out there.
Pike Community Goals work continues
Emilien Macchi continues the thread he started late November with a bit of an update on how the feedback gathering has been going – in short quite well. The details are in the etherpad here – a wide range of goals have been defined – code cleanups, more complete testing of IPv6 and Rolling Upgrade just a sample.
The thread continued with a little discussion and explanation about process, but the bulk of it is what ended up in etherpad. Worth a read if you’re curious about OpenStack wide endeavours.
Many a cancelled team meeting
A general reminder that many project teams and working groups have cancelled their regularly occurring meetings over the coming few weeks as folk head off on holiday. At a quick glance this included Nova, Requirements, Zaqar, Designate, Sahara, Searchlight and Glance – suggest double check yours to save that unnecessary early morning or late night :)

CfP Opens for OpenStack Summit Boston May 2017
An announcement that hit a bunch of lists but not, as far as I could see, openstack-dev was for the opening of Call for Presentations at the OpenStack Summit in Boston next year. Erin Disney’s email has all the details for the event that will run May 8-11 in one of the nicest cities in the US :)
