Icehouse-2 development milestone available

The second milestone of the Icehouse development cycle, “icehouse-2″ is now available for Keystone, Glance, Nova, Horizon, Neutron, Cinder, Ceilometer, Heat, and Trove. Including the oslo libraries, “only” 50 blueprints were implemented and about 650 bugs were fixed during this milestone, which is slightly less than our usual velocity at that point in the cycle. This is mostly due to the recent issues in gating and the end-of-year holiday season. The next development milestone, icehouse-3, is scheduled for March 6th.

Organizing a Gate Blocking Bug Fix Day – Mon Jan 27th

Developers may have noticed issues with our gate and in order to improve the situation Sean Dague proposed a Gate Blocking Bug Fix Day on Jan 27th. All developers are encouraged to focus on fixing bugs on the OpenStack CI infrastructure.

OpenStack Swift as backend for Git

The fine folks at Enovance have written about the advantages of using Swift as backend for Git. In a recent blog post they gave also some details about what happens in Git (server side) when a client pushes or fetches objects. They’ve now shared more operational details on how to handle Swift as a backend to store repositories.

Our first OpenStack Ambassadors

Following on from our earlier discussions about the OpenStack Ambassador Program, it is with great excitement that the Foundation introduced the first OpenStack Ambassadors. In this initial stage, we were only looking for a small number but were very honoured to have applications from many more excellent candidates and will aim to introduce more ambassadors in the next 6 months. The ambassadors are currently working to scope out the program and are keen to start making an impact in our community. Follow the discussion on the community mailing list.

Welcome new Gold Members Aptira, Hitachi, and Huawei!

OpenStack User Survey Statistics November 2013

The OpenStack User Committee and Foundation staff conducted a survey of OpenStack cloud operators and end users, and are sharing the results with the community this week during the OpenStack Summit Hong Kong. The goal of the survey is to give users a strong voice in the community to share their technical requirements, feedback and best practices with the developers building OpenStack, as well as other cloud operators.

The survey generated 822 responses and catalogued 387 OpenStack cloud deployments across 56 countries.  A few key highlights on the detailed blog post and infographic.

Expect the Minus One

We want your patches for OpenStack, Keystone. Just don’t be surprised when it gets a minus one rating. A patch that gets a minus one from a core developer is probably on the right track, it just needs adjustment to fit in with the rest of Keystone. In other words, don’t be afraid, says Adam Young.

The Hong Kong Summit: Why I’m Excited

We asked our community why they’re looking forward to the OpenStack Summit in Hong Kong next week. We received a number of colorful responses and we’re sharing some of the best here. Have something to add?  Let us know why you’re excited for the Summit in the comments!

Reviewing how Blueprints are handled

OpenStack Compute Tech Lead Russell Bryant has triggered an important discussion on the OpenStack Development mailing list about the process to review blueprints. The Blueprints wiki page currently assigns to Project Tech Leads the task of assigning priority to the blueprints and Russell is suggesting that a wider group of people in the community shares such responsibility. Join the discussion on the development mailing list and in Hong Kong.

OpenStack “Core” and Interoperability

Have you been following the “what is core?” conversation since the “Incubation Update” committee completed its work some time ago? This discussion is going to be the big ticket item during next week’s board meeting. Mark McLoughlin shares his thoughts and a discussion derived from it on the OpenStack Foundation mailing list.

Solum: Open Development From Day One

Solum is a project designed to make cloud services easier to consume and integrate into your application development process. Solum begins as a shared vision, not a complete product. It’s a vision that a coalition of contributors believes in and wants to contribute to. For this to work, everything has to be designed and developed in the open from the very beginning. We’re taking the OpenStack commitment to core values of open development, open design and open community right to heart. Kudos to Rackspace, eBay, RedHat, Ubuntu/Canonical, dotCloud/Docker, Cloudsoft and Cumulogic for spearheading this effort.

An analysis of the Technical Committee election

Thierry Carrez played around with the ballots from the election of the Technical Committee. Since detailed ballot reporting was enabled in the past elections, it is possible to test alternative algorithms and run various analysis over the data set. As an official for this election, Thierry published his analysis of the results, hoping it will help in the current discussion on a potential evolution of the Foundation individual members voting system.

OpenStack Havana – the Quality Perspective

With Havana out in the wild, Sean Dague reviews the improvements made to the gating infrastructure during this release cycle. Beyond just increasing the number of tests we run, we made some changes in the nature of what we do in the gate. These changes are easy to overlook: Sean’s post gives a perspective in everything that’s going on behind the scenes when you try to land code in OpenStack.

CoreOS, a good operating system for your OpenStack controllers

Sébastien Han explains why in his opinion CoreOS is an excellent operation system for your OpenStack controllers. Even if CoreOS is not mature enough to be put in production, the technology has a lot of advantages and features that are worth exploring.

The Growing Diversity inside OpenStack Object Storage

Of all OpenStack projects, Object Storage (also known as Swift) has always been considered mature or, in other words, a place where new things rarely happen. The good news is that a lot of exciting things are happening in Swift, specifically around the community participation and growing ecosystem.

Improving the OpenStack Documentation Build Tools

The tools for building and checking the OpenStack Documentation manuals has been improved with a few different options for fine-grained control. The new tools are run locally and as jenkins jobs allowing writers submitting a patch to get quickly an overview about what fails.

Introducing the OpenStack Ambassador Program

OpenStack Community Manager Tom Fifield started the discussion on the formation of an OpenStack Ambassador Program, which aims to create a framework of community leaders to sustainably expand the reach of OpenStack around the world. We would like to recognize and further empower these community members to achieve the OpenStack mission, as well as provide more structure and resources to the growing community and user groups. Your feedback would be excellent! For more specifics on the program, and information about becoming an ambassador, stay tuned for the next post.

Managing identities in the cloud

CERN has 11,000 physicists who use the lab’s facilities including the central IT department resources. As with any research environment, there are many students, PhDs and other project members who join one of the experiments at CERN. They need to have computing accounts to access CERN’s cloud but we also need to make sure these resources are handled correctly when they are no longer affiliated with the organisation.

Why OpenStack Puppet modules did not have vacation

A lot of work has been done on Puppet modules lately. There is no doubt to say that puppet modules are designed for high-quality and best-practices configurations around an important community who takes care of those concepts.

Yet another way to monitor OpenStack

Emilien Macchi decided to write some useful scripts to check if every OpenStack service are running. He was not fully satisfied with current methods because he feels they lack some deepness.

refined: 10 OpenStack Core Positions

OpenStack Foundation Board member Rob Hirschfeld keeps iterating looking for a proposal to define “what is core” in the context of OpenStack. This is a must-read for anybody interested in joining the meeting in San Francisco on Aug 27.

This week’s chart shows the geographical dispersion of participants to Folsom series of events in San Francisco. The information is derived from the work address provided by participants when they registered. Participants from USA were the large majority, around 70% of the over 1,000 participants, nonetheless it’s interesting to look at the distribution once the outlier is removed.
