Most Supported Goals And Improving Goal Completion

  • Community wide goals discussions started at the OpenStack Forum, then the mailing list and IRC for those that couldn’t be at the Forum.
    • These discussions help the TC make decisions on which goals will be to a release.
  • Potential goals:
    • Split Tempest plugins into separate repos/projects 12
    • Move policy and docs into code 13
  • Goals in Pike haven’t been really reached.
  • An idea from the meeting to address this is creating a role called “Champions” who are drum beaters to get a goal done, by helping projects with tracking status, and sometime doing code patches.
  • Interested volunteers who have a good understanding of their selected goal and its implementation to be a trusted person.
  • From the the discussion in thread, it seems we’re mostly in agreement with the Champion idea.
    • We have a volunteer for splitting out tempest plugins into repos/projects.
