Interview with Adrian Otto, a principal architect at Rackspace, is the project technical lead (PTL) for Magnum, an API service developed by the OpenStack containers team for OpenStack to make container management tools such as Docker and Kubernetes available as first-class resources in OpenStack. Magnum officially joined the OpenStack project list upon approval by a unanimous vote by the Technical Committee in March 2015.
If you want to build a gas station next to a children’s playground, fireworks are pretty much guaranteed. That not-in-my-neighborhood face-off was one of the issues hashed out in a recent OpenStack Upstream Training session where about 50 participants split into teams building Lego sets.
Turns out there’s nothing like working together in person to push a cloud project forward. To help make that valuable face time happen, the OpenStack Foundation funded the travel and hotel accommodations for 21 men and 7 women who are key contributors to attend the OpenStack Summit Vancouver.
Starting with the development of the Juno release, the Neutron project moved to using a specs repository similar to how other projects were using them. Kyle Mestery, Neutron’s PTL, reflects on the fact that the process at best, lengthened the pipeline we had in place to gate the incoming feature fire-hose. At worst, it turned off potential committers. Neutron’s team is implementing a new process meant to allow users to express their desires for new features using Launchpad.
