Notable Discussions

New API guidelines for review

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

Election Season Continues!

The week now past saw and end to the PTL Candidate nomination period as variously noted by Tony Breeds and subsequently Tristan Cacqueray when Nominations actually closed.

Tony subsequently announced the opening of Voting a few minutes later.

In the People and Projects section below there’s a summary of both retiring PTLs and a link to the Confirmed Candidates page for PTLs that have nominated.

Slot allocation for Newton Design Summit

Thierry Carrez kicked off a thread on Slot Allocation for the upcoming Design Summit in Austin next month.

Upcoming OpenStack Events

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

People and Projects

Core nominations & changes

PTL’s stepping down

PTL Candidates

The PTL nomination period closed during the course of last week and as a result the list of Confirmed Candidates is now available through the elections page.

By way of quick summary there was more than one candidate for Cinder, Fuel, Glance, Heat, Infrastructure, Keystone, Kolla, Magnum, Packaging-RPM and Telemetry. For all other projects the nominated PTLs are confirmed into the role unopposed.

As to the individual candidate statements, on reflection I realised it doesn’t really make much sense for me to reiterate in Lwood what is now in the official pages anyway, so please head over there if you’re curious about who has put their hand up for what :)

Further Reading & Miscellanea

Don’t forget these excellent sources of OpenStack news

The end of this week marks Easter and is a four day holiday here in Australia (Friday through Monday inclusive) At this stage I plan on actually taking Monday off, so Lwood for next week will likely go out a day late, apologies for any inconvenience caused…
