Notable Discussions – openstack-dev

Architecture Working Group Process

Dean Troyer gives a concise update on where things are up to with the Architecture WG – this important initiative looks to be making good progress

Removing OpenStackSalt and Security project teams from the Big Tent ?

Thierry Carrez started what proved to be a longish thread this week with an email noting that as there were no PTL candidates within the election deadline for a number of official project teams – Astara, UX, OpenStackSalt and Security.

Turns out that the Astara project team wish to abandon the project anyway and the current PTL (Piet) quickly reacted to explain his error and confirm his willingness to continue in the role.

The thread then dealt a bit more specifically with OpenStackSalt – a newer project that seeming had some misunderstandings about the process and Security which has of course been around much longer.

The conclusion by the end of the thread looks to be that both Security and OpenStackSalt will stay within the tent after some satisfactory email and IRC discussions.  Rob Clark’s blog post regarding the situation for the Security project is worth a read too.

Community Contributor Awards nominations open

Kendall Nelson notes that nominations are open for the Community Contributor Awards and will remain so until October 7.

As Kendall puts it: “There are so many people out there who do invaluable work that should be recognized. People that hold the community together, people that make working on OpenStack fun, people that do a lot but aren’t called out for their work, people that speak their mind and aren’t afraid to challenge the norm.”  He continues “Like last time, we won’t have a defined set of awards so we take extra note of what you say about the nominee in your submission to pick the winners.”

Please give some thought to nominating your favour person or their endeavour for the awards, it’s an easy process and a nice way to give recognition to fellow community members.

PTL Election Concludes, TC Positions Open

Tony Breeds noted that the PTL Election has concluded and the results are detailed in his email.

Next up, as pointed out by Tristan Cacqueray in his email are TC elections with Candidate nominations open now through to 1 October 23:45 UTC.

How do -you- handle the openstack-dev Mailing List

Is the question posed by Josh Harlow in his email to the list from late last week – he’s heard it a few times over the years (I dare say many people have) – and is keen for people to share their own work practices.

If you’re reading this -and- contribute to/read the ML please chuck your thoughts in the etherpad :)

Operators Meetup Feedback

So far just the one from Sean Dague as the ops-summit related to Nova, but worth a read and hopefully will inspire more to come :)

More Beautiful Music in Barcelona

Last week’s Lwood made mention of Amrith Kumar’s post seeking instrument wielding musicians – this in turn prompted Neil Jerram to note that there’s a singing group together too :)
