The Must-Attend

Open Infrastructure Event

The open infrastructure landscape is changing, and so is the Summit. Now that users are integrating dozens of open source tools into a modern stack that reaches well beyond the scope of OpenStack, we’re re-organizing the event to focus on specific problem domains like container infrastructure, edge computing and CI/CD and we are focusing on the hard work of integrating all of these tools developed in disparate communities. This is the essential work of 2018 and beyond, to ensure that open infrastructure is truly a viable path for operators.

RDO's Continuous Packaging Platform

Have you contributed to Openstack during this cycle, or do you intend to do so in the next? If so, thanks for helping improving upstream! But do you know how your contribution gets to make it downstream in distributions like Centos, Fedora, Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®? Packaging for these distributions is what Red Hat distribution for OpenStack (RDO) does.

After the OpenStack Tokyo Summit in november 2015, the RDO community transitioned to a delivery workflow inspired by OpenStack's own continuous integration infrastructure ("OpenStack Infra"). The platform relies on Software Factory to automatically set up the tools from OpenStack Infra together, and a few additional tools specific to RDO to ensure the quality of their packages.


In this presentation, we will introduce the main components of RDO's delivery platform, the problems they help solve, and how they can be adapted to set up your own "RPM Factory".


What can I expect to learn?
  • What upstream merges imply for RPM packaging downstream
  • How RDO ensures the quality and speed of delivery for its RPM packages of Openstack
  • How RDO's workflow can be generalized into a "RPM factory"
