Notable Discussions

Release countdown for week R-12

Doug Hellman pens a short reminder of what should be occurring ahead of the Mitaka 2 deadline next week.

Temporary issues with Stackalytics ?

Joe Huang notes some apparent issues with the popular Stackalytics website – Jay Pipes subsequently points out that most of the Mirantis folk are on leave until the 10th, so presumably things will be sorted out quickly thereafter :)

This appears to be affecting both project and individual stats – the latter seemingly not being updated since December 31st.

Austin Panel Session on automatic config file generation ?

Kendall J Nelson sensibly suggests having a session at the Austin summit to further unify the automatic generation of config files.  The subsequent conversation went a little off topic, mostly looking at why Cinder did things differently, but perhaps the fact it did underscores the need for a bit of IRL discussion on it ? :)

Vision and changes for OpenStack API Guides

Anne Gentle writes that there is a lot going on this cycle in the area of OpenStack API Guides and API References and of a cross platform meeting tuesday (12 January) to discuss some of the work planned.  Please take a quick look at what’s going on – the information in question is one of the more important public facing bits of OpenStack after all.

Upcoming OpenStack Events

A summary of OpenStack related events that cropped up on the mailing list this past week.  Don’t forget the OpenStack Foundation’s excellent Events Page for a comprehensive list!

General Events

Once again a reminder that many projects and working groups were cancelling or altering the schedule of their regular IRC meetings for the period spanning the last week of December 2015 into early January 2016.  I believe most meetings are now back on, but check to be sure :)


People and Projects

Further Reading & Miscellanea

Don’t forget these excellent sources of OpenStack news – Mike’s summary makes a welcome return, Lana and Jay’s efforts remain on vacation as far as I’m aware so links are to the most recent edition :)

This edition of Lwood brought to you by the now sadly departed David Bowie (Best of Bowie), David Foster (The Symphony Sessions) amongst other tunes.
