  • Updating the Docs Mission Statement  [17]
    • Thierry proposed [18]:
      • The docs team provides guidance, assistance, tooling, and style guides
        enabling OpenStack project teams to produce consistent, accurate, and
        high-quality documentation.
    • Shifting opinions towards starting from scratch- looking at what the docs team actually does/makes before crafting words around it [19]
    • Discussion will likely continue at the PTG
  • Microversion Parse Growth [20]
    • cdent has a patch that has started cleaning up and shifting miroversion related functions out of the placement serves and into a microversion-parse library [21]
    • Still more work to be done- decorators that handle multiple callables of the same name based on microversion, utility method to raise a status code response based microversion match, etc
    • cdent would like opinions on how to proceed
  • Custom Resource Classes, Bare Metal Scheduling and You [22]
    • If you run a 3rd party CI– this is important
    • In Pike, Nova provides a new way of scheduling baremetal based on custom resource classes
    • The old way is now deprecated but will be UNAVAILABLE in Queens
    • All operators running ironic will have to set the resource class field before upgrading to Pike and change flavors before upgrading to Queens
    • The ironic virt driver in Nova is going to be automatically migrating the embedded flavor within existing instances in Pike [23]
    • A periodic task in the nova-compute service
      will automatically create any custom resource class from an ironic node
      in the Placement service if it does not already exist
