OpenStack Community Weekly Newsletter (June 1-8)

OpenStack Community Newsletter — June 8

Highlights of the week

The results of Bug Triage Day are in

Nova has more bugs than all the other core projects combined, and the most slack to clean up. We went from 237 “New” bugs at the beginning of the day and down to 42, a completion rate of 82%. In the mean time we managed to close permanently 86 open bugs over a total of 627 [more, with charts]

Zuul: a Pipelining Trunk Gating System

The OpenStack Infra team has released a new tool to improve the trunk gating system. Zuul is a program that performs speculative execution of tests.  By constructing a virtual queue of changes based on the order of their approval, it runs jobs in parallel assuming they will all be successful.  If any of them fail, then any jobs that were run based on the assumption they succeeded are re-run without the problematic changes included.  This means that in the best case, as many changes can be tested and merged in parallel as computing resources will allow for testing.  And of course, with cloud computing, that isn’t much of a hurdle.

OpenStack Blog Authors Code Of Conduct
