List traffic bounced back to almost exactly pre-summit levels this week past.

Notable Discussions

Swift News

John Dickinson penned a couple of posts to the list last week with some significant news for the Swift project;

In the first he flags the plans for the feature/hummingbird branch which amongst other things includes portions of Swift being written/re-written in go.  Perhaps most noteworthy is the integration of the feature/crypto work to provide at-rest encryption.

In the second he notes that the project is moving away from using the swift-specs repo to collate/debate and manage ideas for future work.  It has instead been replaced by a “shared brain dump” area – aka a Wiki page https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Swift/ideas.

Next Summit Locations

After Barcelona, we’re off to Boston in May 2017 and then Sydney in November 2017 :)

Nikhil Komawar wrote an amusing and heartfelt thanks to the glance cores :)

Incidentally – if you found the above useful, please shoot me a quick email as it’s a fairly labour intensive summary, one I’m happy to do if it’s actually useful for folk, might skip in future if not!
