An Ideal OpenStack Developer

In a long piece, Mark McLoughlin thinks about the velocity OpenStack achieved and how it has managed to attract an unusual number of contributors and, for such a complex project, made it relatively easy for tThe way I feel when upgrading my OpenStack cloudhem to contribute. He attempts to define The Prototypical OpenStack Developer. The ideal that we should aspire to. The standard that all contributors should be held to. And asks questions at the end.

Analysis of April 2014 TC election

Thierry Carrez found time to analyze the results of the recent 2014 election to renew 7 of the 13 Technical Commitee’s members. It seems we have ‘currents’ among voters, from the foodie party to the French one.

Understanding OpenStack Designated Code Sections – Three critical questions

After nearly a year of discussion, the OpenStack board launched the DefCore process with 10 principles that set us on path towards a validated interoperability standard.   We created the concept of “designated sections” to address concerns that using API tests to determine core would undermine commercial and community investment in a working, shared upstream implementation. Designated sections provide the “you must include this” part of the core definition.  Having common code as part of core is a central part of how DefCore is driving OpenStack operability.

State of Application Developer Experience with OpenStack

When Matt Farina first started writing applications that ran in OpenStack clouds or worked against the APIs the experience was painful. Things are improving but his post reminds us that we have plenty of opportunities to improve.

Make OpenStack speak your language

Looking for a way to contribute to OpenStack? Coding is just one of the available options. In fact, there are several non-coding activities like design, documentation, marketing and internationalization. For more details about this, go ahead and check out the how to contribute wiki page.

OpenStack Upstream Training in Atlanta

The OpenStack Foundation is delivering a training program to accelerate the speed at which new OpenStack developers are successful at integrating their own roadmap into that of the OpenStack project.  If you’re a new OpenStack contributor or plan on becoming one soon, you should sign up for the next OpenStack Upstream Training in Atlanta, May 10-11. Participation is strongly advised also for first time participants to OpenStack Design Summit.

Why we do Feature freeze

OpenStack Release Manager Thierry Carrez explains why OpenStack project does something so ‘anti-agile’ as feature freeze weeks before the release.

The Intersection of the OpenStack and Python Communities

OpenStack reached the considerable size of 1.3 million lines of code, mostly python. Oslo PTL Doug Hellmann shares his thoughts on how to keep OpenStack complexity manageable.

September 2013 PTL elections – Final results

Thank you to the electorate, to all those who voted and to all candidates who put their name forward for PTL for this election. A healthy, open process breeds trust in our decision making capability – thank you to all those who make this process possible.

Thinking about how to Implement OpenStack Core Definition

There have been a number of community discussions (OSCON, SFO & SA-TX) around the process for OpenStack Core definition. We’re continuing to get community feedback.  So what’s next?

First…. Get involved: Upcoming Community Core Discussions

  • 10/8 7pm (Tues) New York City Meetup (Rob Hirschfeld & Monty Taylor)
  • 10/16 9am (Wed) tentative Online Meetup (details TBD, Rob Hirschfeld & Alan Clark)
  • 10/22 7pm (Tues) Minnesota Meetup (Kyle Mestery & Sean Roberts)
  • Week Before Summit: Beijing Meetup hosted by Alan Clark (details TBD)

What’s Next?  Implementation! Rob Hirschfeld has some ideas about that too on his blog.

Easier upstreaming / back-porting of patch series with git

Have you ever needed to port a selection of commits from one git branch to another, but without doing a full merge? This is a common challenge and Adam Spiers spends some time explaining how to ease the pain.

OpenStack Icehouse Incubation Roundup

The OpenStack Technical Committee met this week to consider the status of incubated projects for the upcoming Icehouse cycle. As a result, database provisioning (codename Trove)will be an official part of the Icehouse (2014.1) release, while message queues (Marconi) and bare-metal server provisioning (Ironic) will be in incubation with a view to becoming official in the as-yet-unnamed J (2014.2) release. MapReduce as a service (Savanna) will also be incubated.

How to Use Ask OpenStack

We’re continuously building together “The best place on the Internet to find answers to common OpenStack problems”: our Question&Answers site Ask OpenStack is such place and needs everybody’s help. Ask OpenStack is a collaborative effort, think of it like a wiki where pages are made only of questions and answers. Anybody with more than 100 karma points can fix a question or an answer and anybody can gain karma points by getting votes on answers and/or questions.

Introducing the NNFI scheduler for Zuul

We recently made a change to Zuul’s scheduling algorithm (how it determines which changes to combine together and run tests).  Now when a change fails tests (or has a merge conflict), Zuul will move it out of the series of changes that it is stacking together to be tested, but it will still keep that change’s position in the queue.  Jobs for changes behind it will be restarted without the failed change in their proposed repo states.  And if something later fails ahead of it, Zuul will once again put it back into the stream of changes it’s testing and give it another chance.

OpenStack’s Test Driven Core

In helping drive OpenStack’s “what is core” dialog, board member Rob Hirschfeld has reported a lot of viewpoints about what OpenStack is and what it should be. As a good steward of this process he has successfully managed to be an objective listener.  In the recent post in the series, he expresses his point of view. This is one of the most important conversations for the OpenStack Foundation and it’s happening now.

Flavors – An English perspective

OpenStack has the capability to define flavors of virtual machines, how many cores, swap, disk and memory. As a native UK English speaker, Tim Bell finds the term flavor to already be a problem. In his post describing how flavors are used at CERN he appeals to the OpenStack technical committee to not accept any term which is not the same in US and UK English or to allow an alias. His post has lots of other interesting information, too.

Non-Relational Database-as-a-Service in OpenStack

The OpenStack Technical Committee voted this week to expand the scope of the Trove program, which is currently in incubation, to encompass non-relational as well as relational databases.
