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 5 to 11 December for openstack-dev:

  • ~304 Messages (down about 25% relative to last week)
  • ~103 Unique threads (down about 14% percent relative to last week)

As the calendar year draws to a close, things are getting quieter on OpenStack Dev. Before you sign off for the year, please consider completing the survey I’ve put together about Lwood – more details below. My thanks to folk who have already done so :)

A heads up that this is the second to last Lwood for 2016 – I won’t be putting one together on 26 December or 2 January.  Normal service will resume on 9 January :)

Lwood Feedback Survey

I’m pleased that Lwood still generates positive commentary from across the OpenStack Community, but figure as the year draws to a close, it’s a good time to gather some feedback.

So I’ve put together a survey.  It will probably take no more than five minutes to complete and I would be very grateful if you’d take some time to fill it out.  Thank you in anticipation :)

DefCore Committee now called Interop Working Group

Egle Sigler noted that acting on an initial request from the Board of Directors earlier in the year, the DefCore group has changed it’s name to better reflect its current mission.  Egle’s email has more details but in short the name change has been underway for some months and has now reached the point where the transition is complete.

Ocata Bugsmash in Shenzen a Great Success

Sean McGinnis gave an enthusiastic summary of a very successful sounding event in Shenzen, China – the Ocata Bugsmash.  Huawei and Intel were among the supporters of what sounds like productive week.  Sean goes on to encourage the event to become a multi location happening for each cycle, not a bad idea I’d reckon!

OpenStack Summit Barcelona summary of summaries

A somewhat late but important one from Jeremy Stanley covering the Infra sessions which will be of interest to all who make use of OpenStack infrastructure. Remainder of the summaries are listed here.

End of Week Wrap-ups

Just the two from Ruby Loo and Richard Jones for Ironic and Horizon respectively.

Notable Discussions – other OpenStack lists

Shamail Tahir announced that the Active User Contributor (AUC) Working Group is being disbanded.  While it might at first glance seem a little odd to celebrate the end of a Working Group, quite the contrary – the point of the WG was to accomplish a particular OpenStack wide task and then close down in an orderly fashion.  Job done and a credit to all involved.
