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.
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.
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.
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.
