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

Basic Stats for the week 24 to 30 October for openstack-dev:

  • ~150 Messages (down about 67% relative to last week)
  • ~68 Unique threads (also down about 67% relative to last week)

As far as Lwood record keeping goes at least, the last time the list was this quiet was the week ending January 3 this year (143 messages/66 threads).  Perhaps further proof that Barcelona is a particularly convivial and productive spot – traffic in the previous three summit weeks has been in the ~300 messages range!

Notable Discussions – openstack-dev

New OpenStack Security Notice

Glance Image service v1 and v2 api image-create vulnerability [OSSN-0076]

From the summary “No limits are enforced within the Glance image service for both v1 and v2 `/images` API POST method for authenticated users, resulting in possible denial of service attacks through database table saturation.” More in the original post or SSN itself.

Design Summit Notes and Miscellanea

With the Barcelona Summit concluding last week some notes from the Glance project courtesy of Brian Rosmaita and a photo of some of the OpenStack Ansible team from the camera of Monty Taylor and the keyboard of Major Hayden.

I imagine the coming weeks will see a bit of a flurry of such reports, will keep you posted.  If you can’t wait there are of course videos of most sessions from the Summit on the OpenStack Foundation website.

Storyboard enhancement to represent complex priorities

On behalf of the Storyboard project, Zara Zaimeche announced some neat new functionality that provides more fine grained representation of task priority.  Briefly whereas previously each task could be assigned a single priority (“High”, “Medium” or “Low”) , the new functionality allows users/projects to specify a level of priority as it applies to them.  It is then possible to see at a glance where other users/projects have set their priority for the task in question.

Notable Discussions – other OpenStack lists

Another quiet week on the other lists, at least from an Lwood perspective, one I will flag though is that there’s been some proposals put forward for the location for the Ops Meetup in early 2017.  Chris Morgan elaborates here – Tokyo and Milano are the two so far.

This weeks edition of Lwood brought to you by the birdsongs and other background sounds of Brunswick, Melbourne.
