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 18 to 24 July 2016 for openstack-dev:

  • ~515 Messages (up about 32% relative to last week)
  • ~175 Unique threads (up a percent – basically the same as last week)

A busier week in terms of overall traffic, but the number of unique threads about the same and relatively less to note in Lwood this time around.

A reminder that for the next four weeks or so Lwood may arrive a little later than usual – I’m in the US and so it may not always be practical to get things out the door Sunday afternoon/evening… :)

Notable Discussions – openstack-dev

New OpenStack Security Notice

Repeated token revocation requests can lead to service degradation or disruption (OSSN 0068)

From the summary “There is currently no limit to the frequency of keystone token revocations that can be made by a single user, in any given time frame. If a user repeatedly makes token requests, and then immediately revokes the token, a performance degradation can occur and possible DoS (Denial of Service) attacks could be directed towards keystone.”

More information and discussion in the original post or the OSSN itself.

Midcycle Summaries & Minutes

A few posts this week with minutes and/or summaries of mid cycles held these last few weeks for Cinder (Kendall Nelson), Horizon (Rob Cresswell) and Monasca (Fabio Giannetti).

More on project mascots

A few more projects kicked off the process of deciding on Mascots/Logos, as mentioned last week this all stemmed from a post by Heidi Joy Tretheway from the OpenStack Foundation.

The new threads included Charms, Cinder, Manila, Murano, Requirements, Tacker, Telemetry and Tricircle.

If you’re curious last week saw these per project threads for Ansible, App-Catalog, Congress, Designate, Freezer, Glance, Horizon, Kolla, Mistral, Neutron, Puppet, Sahara,Vitrage and Zaqar.

Notable Discussions – other OpenStack lists

Nothing on the other lists that struck me as good Lwood material (this not, of course to say there were no useful conversations!! :)Upcoming OpenStack Events

Further Reading & Miscellanea

Don’t forget these excellent sources of OpenStack news – most recent ones linked in each case

A little plug – as I mentioned last week, I’ve submitted a talk proposal for the Barcelona OpenStack summit titled “Finding your way around the OpenStack-Dev mailing list”  If approved, in the session I will provide a bit of a guide for newcomers (and old hands) to navigating around the various OpenStack related mailing lists, openstack-dev in particular as well as some other useful stuff. This of course all based on my work on Lwood.  When voting goes live for the summit, I’d welcome your support if you think the proposed talk sounds worthwhile – link to follow :)

This edition of Lwood brought to you by the sounds of silence (well ambient noise at my friends place aside… ;)
