Release management [clear filter]
Thursday, November 7


Icehouse Vulnerability Management
The Vulnerability Management Team challenges for the Icehouse cycle:

- Clarify VMT scope, with projects being replaced by programs
- Evolution in the VMT processes
- Tooling/infrastructure needs
- Staffing up

(Session proposed by Thierry Carrez)

Thursday November 7, 2013 9:00am - 9:40am
AWE Level 2, Room 202


Stable branch maintenance
In this session we'll review the current state of stable branch maintenance and review potential process evolution:

- fewer supported releases ?
- dependency capping ?
- need for point releases ?
- accepted patches ?
- relationship with security maintenance ?

Any downstream consumer interested in sharing the load of handling bugfix backport should join us to discuss the best way to solve this as a community.

(Session proposed by Thierry Carrez)

Python3 and Pypy support
In havana, we started adding python3 support and we made a start with the infrastructure of what needs to be done. What do we need to do in Icehouse to continue with that effort ?

In parallel there were efforts to support running OpenStack under Pypy. We'll review the status of that effort as well and the next steps for the Icehouse cycle.

Friday November 8, 2013 9:00am - 9:40am
AWE Level 2, Room 202


Release artifact management
We need to discuss when, how and where we upload release artifacts. Specifically:

- should we upload server releases to pypi
- how should client lib releases work
- how does this interface with storyboard
- what about if we had a non-python thing?

(Session proposed by Monty Taylor)

Icehouse release schedule & coordination
This session will include the following subject(s):

Icehouse release schedule & coordination:

In this session we'll discuss and decide the deadlines and milestones for the Icehouse coordinated release cycle. We'll also discuss potential changes in the process, the format of the weekly release status meeting, and the improvements needed to the toolset supporting the release management tasks.

(Session proposed by Thierry Carrez)

Considering translation in release cycle:

In Havana release, I18n team worked together with Horizon team to complete 12 languages translation (1700+ strings) and run the translation verification test ( reported 15+ bugs related with I18n) within 1 month from string frozen date to RC2. In Icehouse release, we are going to cover more components, that means, more strings need to be translated. 1 month may be not enough.

We need to find a way to give translators enough time for translation and verification test. We can discuss this in this session.

The future of Design Summits
"Design Summits" are a key moment in OpenStack development cycles where our development community gathers to brainstorm the next steps for our project. It always happened more or less at the same time as the traditional "Conference", without causing too much conflict, with the key technical contributors mostly ignoring the conference to concentrate on the 4-day design summit.

However, with the explosive growth of OpenStack and the success of the conference, it is a problem to prevent our best technical resources from presenting and attending the conference. We need to discuss ways to organize those events in the future which would enable more participation from our technical contributors.

We'll also discuss the design summit format, how we select sessions and schedule them, as well as needed evolutions on the ODSREG application (summit.openstack.org).
