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 9 to 15 January for openstack-dev:

  • ~382 Messages (down about 33% relative to the long term average)
  • ~145 Unique threads (down about 19% relative to the long term average)

Traffic once again quiet but trajectory is positive after the break.  A reminder that I’ve changed the reporting slightly to be against the long term average (since 22 June 2015), a pretty graph to follow one week soon, truly!

Notable Discussions – openstack-dev

Improving Vendor Driver Discoverability

Mike Perez puts forward a proposal for improving the availability and accuracy of vendor specific driver information across OpenStack projects.  This has been the purview of the driverlog project which in turn, amongst other things, provides data that is used in the OpenStack Marketplace.

One of the difficulties put forward has been keeping this information current, residing as it currently does in a central json file – many projects would prefer to maintain this information within their projects – somewhat tricky to do if it’s in a common file.

Among some other suggestions for the process, Mike volunteers to create files for each project involved to bootstrap this process and then turn them over to be maintained by the project therafter.  Data in these per-project files will be aggregated together to produce the final results used by the Marketplace and elsewhere.
