OpenStack Community Weekly Newsletter (July 6-13)

Highlights of the week

G stands for Grizzly

Results of the naming poll for next OpenStack release are in, and the G release will be named “Grizzly“.  The regular poll selected “Gazelle” (35 votes), with “Gilroy” (27 votes) being a close second. But the Grizzly revolt poll showed overwhelming support for the “Grizzly” name (88 votes) rather than going with the results of the regular poll (46 votes).

The Waldon exception (accepting elements of the state/country flag in addition to city/county names) will be added to our naming rules for future naming contests 🙂

Some clarifications about Cinder

With the promotion of Cinder to OpenStack core project, Cinder’s PTL John Griffith explained what the project does and what the future release, Grizzly, may look like. OpenStack operators are invited to give their opinion and help developers take the best decision.
