Welcome to Last week on OpenStack Dev (“Lwood”) for the week just past. For more background on Lwood, please refer here.

Basic Stats for week 4 to 10 July 2016 for openstack-dev:

  • ~311 Messages (down about 41% relative to last week)
  • ~128 Unique threads (down about 25% relative to last week)

Much like last year around this time, the list quite a lot quieter due to various public holidays in North America and general summer holiday goodness elsewhere in the Northern Hemisphere :)

Notable Discussions – openstack-dev

Bringing Murano-dashboard and Horizon App-catalog-UI closer

Kirill Zaitsev follows up discussions begun in Austin about bringing the Murano’s Dashboard and Horizon’s App Catalog closer together.  The long term goal seems to be to avoid duplication of effort with a more immediate goal of a more consistent user experience.

An update on Open vSwitch support in Ansible

Travis Truman flagged email a blog post he’s done that describes some of the testing and setup he did in his home lab to experiment with this recently added functionality.  It’s a good read and a nice way to get a feel for what this addition to Ansible provides.

Leadership Training recap

Collette Alexander wrote a summary of what happened last week at the leadership training session that had been organised by the OpenStack Foundation.  Amrith Kumar’s blog post is a good read too – and is imaginatively titled “The OpenStack TC will NOT be opening a deli!” :)

Retiring the Nova-Docker project

Dims Srinivas kicked off a thread noting that based on the project apparently being barely active he’d kick off the process of retiring the process.  A little discussion ensued, some in favour, some in dissent but all quite constructive – it’ll be interesting to see where things fetch up.

Want to present a lightning talks in Barcelona ?

If you do then Mike Perez’s email is the place to go for all the details :)

Successful bug squash for StoryBoard

Zara Zaimeche posted an update on the recent bug squash the StoryBoard project held recently.  Sounds like it was very successful and one of the features – an improved UI for the comments and events timeline is indeed pretty slick.  The link in Zara’s email wasn’t quite correct I think, you can see the new UI she refers to in this example.
